POST 1 | Impact of Private BCBAs on the Provision of Behavior Services for School Districts: Whether in School or Providing Online Instruction
Thursday, April 22, 2021: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Private BCBAs increasingly are advocating for parents and students at IEP meetings. Using her experience in the private- and public-school sectors, Dr. Laura Forkum will discuss the similarities and differences between the provision of behavior services in these settings, plus provide practical tips that IEP teams can use for collaborating with private BCBAs. But sometimes conflict is unavoidable, particularly during the challenging times of a national pandemic. What if a parent requests ABA or other behavioral supports in the home setting during periods of online instruction due to COVID-19? And what are the possible ramifications of failing to provide direct behavioral supports in the home setting? Combining her experience as a school psychologist and litigator, Deanna Arivett will share sample tools and resources for developing defensible FBAs and behavior supports that satisfy the Endrew F. standard of FAPE.
