This recorded webinar was originally presented by the Behavior Analysis Advocacy Network (BAAN).  Upon BAAN's dissolution in June 2020, its CEU course library was transferred to CASP.    

Abstract: 

The Behavior Analysis Advocacy Network (BAAN) advocacy efforts have been focused on promoting access to care for military parents and TRICARE providers during the past several years. While gains have been made for some individual providers, more progress must be made. BAAN will share methodologies employed to equip attendees with the tools necessary to access solutions for common challenges. They will also receive ethical guidance on what to do when they are unable to make their desired progress. Options for providers and families to self-advocate are not always clearly laid out. Attendees will receive strategies for handling conflict resolution that emphasize both professional conduct and optimal outcomes. Recommendations will be aligned with the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) Compliance Code standards and effective communication processes. 

Participants will receive:

  • Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) Compliance Code standards that apply to conflict resolution and funding source engagement
  • A review of current challenges being faced by those participating in the Autism Care Demonstration (ACD) program
  • Recommended approaches for dealing with funding source challenges that align with the BACB Compliance Code
  • Examples and discussion about how to implement the recommendations
