Abstract
In the Czech Republic applied behavior analysis (ABA) is in its infancy. There has been movement towards establishing licensure and securing funding for the advancement of the field. While significant strides have been made in terms of availability and quality of ABA services for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and their families, there is more work to be done. In an effort to close gaps in current ABA practices, a structured curriculum was presented across six behavioral skills training (BST) workshops. Practitioners currently working in the field of ABA, who were also working towards BCBA certification, participated in the workshop series. The BST workshops focused on the typical progression of establishing ABA services; moving through the logistics of the intake process, assessment, behavior plan development, curriculum planning, and parent training. Impact data were collected throughout the series by evaluating the components present in clients’ ABA programming. A multiple probe design, across the components taught, was used to assess the outcomes of the applied BST sessions on the services being provided. Preliminary results indicate that the targeted BST workshops, set-up in an applied format with requirements for case application along the way, were effective in changing practices and outcomes.
