Panelists will discuss reasons (e.g., conceptual, ethical, methodological) for incorporating culturally and linguistically diverse variables within our science. They will discuss how these variables have been evaluated as independent and dependent variables in behavior analytic research for a variety of purposes (e.g., assessment and treatment of problem behavior, teaching native language).
