If you follow SLP groups on social media, you’ll know there are a lot of conversations about conflicts between professionals with different backgrounds and points of view. ASHA SIG Perspectives published a few pieces with helpful thoughts on these issues (marked below with *). We’ll call this collection “Playing well with others, or, Learning to Love a BCBA.”
This is a really good article regarding the issue of how much therapy is "enough" (scheduling, treatment intensity, etc.) We discuss it, here.
This is a great read if you are transitioning to this population or just feeling uncertain about your practice with these types of kids. It reviews the foundational skills (like joint attention) that we need to address and describes interventions that WORK.
This is an important article to keep handy if you work in an ABA program or share clients with a BCBA. Not only does it demystify that profession’s particular jargon (if it’s unknown to you), it helps point out the places where SLPs have parallel terms and practices. Knowledge is power, and shared language can set the stage for good collaboration.
Not sure many of us are actually in a position to do this right now, but it’s SO COOL.
