21 different graduate students in the Applied Behavior Analysis program at USF were authors on research presented at the annual Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) convention held in Chicago May 27 - 31, 2016. Many of the students also attended the convention and presentations.
The ABA program is designed to meet the growing need in Florida and nationally for practitioners who can work effectively within systems to improve the quality of services in the fields of developmental disabilities, education, child protective services, rehabilitation, mental health, and business and technology.
ABAI was founded in May 1974 at the University of Chicago. The first annual convention was held the following year and has been the largest gathering of behavior analysts for all of its 40-year history. The event gathers over 4,500 behavior analysts from all over the world; typically, more than 50 countries are represented. ABAI also conducts an annual autism conference, an international conference every 2 years, and other topical events, including those covering education and behavioral research and translation. The association has more than 6,000 members from nearly 70 countries.
