SLPs and BCBAs: How Do We Make Collaboration Work?


This recorded webcast totals 120 minutes with a review of theory, philosophy, methodology, and practice for BCBAs, BCABAs, SLPs, administrators, and others working with these professionals and individuals with autism spectrum disorders.


This training is eligible for 2 BACB Type II CEUs.

When the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder is given, two core characteristics may immediately come to mind–communication and behavior. Delayed communication and challenging behaviors are fundamental concerns in individuals with autism. The cycle of poor language and challenging behavior is continuous and requires the collaboration of two very specific professionals to address these needs as well as the global needs of the individual and their family.

So much of challenging behavior can be traced to poor communication skills and many communication deficits can likewise be drawn from challenging behavior. Because of this the line between the two fields often becomes blurred. However, both BCBAs and SLPs must adhere to their respective discipline’s code of ethics and only intervene within their own scope of practice. By knowing each discipline’s rich history, scope of practice, and philosophies, professional collaboration can be successfully accomplished.
