Why be a behavioral educator? What does it mean to be a behavioral educator? Does it imply working with learners with autism spectrum disorder or other special needs? Does it go beyond the use of discrete trials or the collection of data? Being a behavioral educator can include these things, but also much, much more. Within the presentation, several key features of behavioral educators will be shared, with historic and real-world examples of how behavior analysis is improving the work of teachers and the lives of students. The power of behavior analysis to vastly enhance teaching and learning for all learners will be explored, resulting in ideas and concrete actions new and veteran educators can do “right now” to improve their student outcomes.
