Natick, MA., January 28, 2019 – Realizing Children’s Strengths (RCS) Learning Center in Natick, MA was well-represented at this month’s Association for Behavior Analysis International Conference (ABAI) in San Francisco with poster presentations by Dr. Christina King, BCBA, LABA; Megan Breault, M.S., BCBA, LABA; and Colleen Yorlets, M.A., M.S., BCBA, LABA.
The trio offered insight on three topics:
Stimulus Generalization and Equivalence-Based Instruction
Stimulus Equivalence and Emergent Verbal Behavior
Methodologies to Establish Conditioned Reinforcers
While the three posters examine different conceptual areas within behavior analysis, all focus on efficiency of instruction for learners with autism and other developmental disabilities. Efficiency of instruction is a common theme in RCS’ ongoing lines of research, with findings disseminated in the larger behavior analytic community and then translated into practical applications for RCS students.
