MY VISION AS A PSYCHOLOGY PRACTITIONER SCHOLAR Abstract There are many responsibilities that come along with being a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). As a BCBA it is important for me to understand that I also play the role of a practitioner-scholar in which I will need to be well versed in theory and research in order to ensure the effectiveness and validity of my practices. My goals are listed with becoming a BCBA as my main goal with a few milestones in between. As a BCBA, I will work in the field of applied behavior analysis in which I will assist those who have autism through early interventions. 2

MY VISION AS A PSYCHOLOGY PRACTITIONER SCHOLAR My Vision as a Psychology Practitioner-Scholar: Intervention Using Applied Behavior Analysis with Children Affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder Introduction Facets of the human brain are unique for every person, leaving much inquiry into what parts are responsible for behaviors and what parts can be manipulated to control how a person learns or acts. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) falls into one of these unique components that perplexes many, as it is characterized by deficits in social cognition, language, and other daily living skills (Geschwind, 2011). Although Brownell & Walther-Thomas (2001) mention how there is no cure for ASD, they also discuss how education and therapy can be used to help those affected by autism to function at a higher capacity within their disability.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
