Public schools increasingly seek consultation from behavior analysts for students with autism and other developmental disabilities participating in regular education classrooms. This is a very positive development, as applied behavior analysis can often make a tremendous difference in the success of these programs. Many behavior analysts, however, have received most or all of their training in segregated settings. There are significant differences between successfully working 1-1 with learners in clinics or home settings and working with learners in regular education settings. This presentation focuses on teaching skills that behavior analysts and other educators need to be successful in regular education settings. The presentation will cover the obstacles and practical strategies to overcome those obstacles in the areas of assessment, measurement, teaching procedures, treatment of problem behaviors, and social skills.
