Delivering behavior analytic services to individuals with disabilities does not come without its challenges. With a growing population (many of whom are entering adulthood), a shortage of trained personnel, and budget cuts at the state and federal level, many service providers are turning toward technology to maximize the impact of the services they provide. With the advent of the Internet, video streaming, telemedicine, smart phones and tablet computing, the avenues by which behavior analytic assessment, intervention, and training can be delivered to this complex group of individuals is rapidly expanding. Organizations can use such technological tools to improve staff training, data collection, organizational management, curriculum design and implementation, student/client independence and communication. Panel members will discuss available technologies that may help service providers increase their impact on those they serve. A brief review of the literature on utilizing technology in ABA programs will also be given.
