12. Legal and Ethical Considerations for the Written Functional Assessment and Behavioral Intervention Plan - Presidents Hall 1, 2 & 3
Many BCBAs working in schools and other settings are responsible for conducting functional assessments and developing behavioral intervention plans. What many behavior analysts may not know is that the written documents represent the only view of the process that outside observers, regulators, and advocates might have. Therefore, it is critical that the written document is constructed in a manner that is consistent with standards of legal and ethical practice. Although some aspects of practice vary from state to state, the fundamentals of the written assessment and written plan are generally consistent. In this presentation, Dr. Vollmer will draw from his experiences to describe “hot button” items associated with the written component of the assessment and plan. He will make suggestions related to making the written components clear, and as free from misinterpretation as possible. Throughout, legal and ethical standards will guide the discussion.

19. Ethics for Behavior Analysts: “The Good Place” - Deans Hall 1 & 2
This session is an enlightening approach to ethics, and an overview that is pragmatic and analytic. The tools a behavior analyst brings to the table with regards to interventions with clients should also be used to govern one’s own behavior. Ethics is a topic that is all encompassing, and practitioners can often face a variety of decisions that should be driven by ethics-related undercurrents. This session will provide an analysis of ethical behavioral approaches, practical applications, data collection techniques, and strategies to improve expertise and self-care. Welcome to the “Good Place” where behavior analysts can discuss daily decisions, integrity and principles that can occur and should be analyzed and managed to maintain professionalism.

51. Ethical Issues Regarding the Assessment and Treatment of Feeding Difficulties (Picky Eaters) - Room 105
Many children with autism spectrum disorders develop food selectivity or what is also called “picky eating.” It is not uncommon for children to restrict their diets to one brand of chicken nuggets, to refuse to eat colored foods, or to consume only pureed foods. This training will focus on the ethical issues related to the assessment & treatment in behavioral feeding. Participants will also learn what medical, behavioral, and related service assessments should be completed before starting feeding therapy. Participants will discuss the ethical issues related to the use of various techniques such as deprivation, physical prompting, and extinction. Time will be available for questions and answers throughout the event.
