"The Autism SIG, chartered by the Association for Behavior Analysis, brings together those individuals who specialize in or have an interest in the application of behavior analysis to the education and treatment of autism across the lifespan. The Autism SIG has three primary purposes: 1) To promote behavior analytic research and the exchange of scientific information in the area of autism treatment; 2) To advocate for and promote high standards in the application of behavior analytic treatments; and 3) To support consumers of ABA services. SIG activities include conference events, participation in the ABA Exhibition, a quarterly newsletter, and a student research award. Currently, there are several committees within the SIG: Membership, Consumer Resource Development and Dissemination, Website, and Newsletter. Our diverse membership includes academicians, researchers, administrators, practitioners from a variety of disciplines, parents, and other consumers. We welcome new members who share our interest in applied behavior analysis and autism treatment. Members receive the SIG's quarterly newsletter at no cost."
