Course Description: Working within schools and adhering to the Behavior Analyst Certification Board's ethical guidelines can present a formidable challenge due to environmental constraints, laws and diverse populations. This course addresses several of the factors that make working in schools unique and provides ethical ways in which the behavior analyst can 1) obtain consent, 2) conform to legal demands of exceptional student education, 3) address issues of reinforcement, 4) be more systematic and 5) handle complex cases. 

Objectives: 

  • Describe two unique challenges of working within schools.
  • Name the three elements of success.
  • Detail one reason consent might not be needed for an FBA.
  • State the rule about anonymity for behavior analysts when reporting.

Keywords: Education, school, consultant, ethics, legal, FBA, consent, BIP 

Rating: This is recommended for BCBAs, BCaBAs or other professionals (with an understanding of behavioral principles) and will provide specific ethics application to the educational setting with both typically developing children and those with disabilities.

This course is eligible for BACB ethics CEs.
