When working with students with disabilities in ABA-based educational programs, the best outcomes will occur when all adults working with the students implement effective assessment and intervention strategies with fidelity. However, teaching staff members evidence-based procedures and ensuring consistency among professionals and paraprofessionals is often challenging. The presenter will illustrate these challenges, including an analysis of resistance to consultation.
