Behavior Analysis in Public Education SIG

TxABA’s Behavior Analysis in Public Education Special Interest Group focuses on promoting and disseminating evidence based practices and positive behavior supports within the field of behavior analysis and education. The SIG was established in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex in January 2014 to meet an increasing need in the field.

Current 2015 goals:

  1. 1. To provide a local professional community to support individuals who practice Applied Behavior Analysis in public education systems
  2. 2. To host and identify training events relevant to issues in public education (such as conducting FBAs, using assessment tools, training staff, designing school programs with ABA principles, etc).
  3. 3. Establish procedures to disseminate membership and training opportunities to other behavior analysts and professionals in the state of Texas (such as maintaining an active web or social media site, email database, and become a BACB ACE provider)

Upcoming CEU Topics:

  1. 1. VB-MAPP assessments in public schools
  2. 2. Functional Analysis and Behavior Intervention Plans in public agencies

Activities of the BAiPE SIG are directed by a committee, which includes:
