Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand the training experiences and roles of school psychologists and BCBAs in schools.
  2. understand the collaborative behaviors of school psychologists and BCBAs working in schools.
  3. learn factors that promote or inhibit interprofessional collaboration among school psychologists and BCBAs.

Description

Schools’ need for highly trained school psychologists and behavior analysts continues to grow, and training programs need to prepare school psychologists and behavior analysts who can effectively collaborate to support students in need of significant behavior support. This study will explore the current practices of school psychologists and BCBAs on collaborating with each other in schools, their training in interprofessional collaboration, and perceptions of factors that promote or inhibit collaboration.
