About the event
While ABA has undeniably transformed lives, it's not impervious to critique. The paper addresses a significant criticism from outside the field—that ABA aims to make Autistic individuals appear "indistinguishable" from their peers. Delve into the article as it defines "indistinguishability" in behavior-analytic terms, examines its historical usage in notable studies, and conducts a comprehensive review of the social validity and ethical implications surrounding this goal.
This discussion doesn't just stop at academic analysis; we incorporate perspectives from the Autistic self-advocate community, giving voice to concerns that deserve attention. Join us as we navigate the complexities of ABA's goals, acknowledging the legitimacy of these concerns and exploring pathways for change.
Sign up now for this eye-opening event—an opportunity to broaden your understanding, consider diverse perspectives, and engage in a dialogue that goes beyond behavior. Don't miss your chance to be part of this crucial conversation!
