Within the framework of Applied Behavior Analysis, ABC provides services beyond our domestic borders. Since 2002, ABC has provided ABA services internationally. Here is a list of some of the countries we have worked with over the past several years:
Coming soon: Chile (2012)
ABC has provided comprehensive ABA workshops internationally. We have also provided behavioral assessments with individuals diagnosed with Autism and other disabilities. In many of the countries, we continue to provide ongoing consultation via web cam and will schedule frequent follow up visits to ensure consistency of implementation and program effectiveness. ABC is open to work with local government officials, as well as Autism parent/support groups in these other countries.
It is ABC’s goal to help as many children and their families as possible, no matter where they reside. We have maintained positive, professional relationships with many of our international contacts. At the ABAI conference in 2006, Dr. Joseph E. Morrow, Co-Founder and President of Applied Behavior Consultants, Inc., was presented an award "For International Dissemination of Behavior Analysis." In his acceptance speech, Dr. Morrow spoke of the need to "Behavioralize the world,” from Jack Michael's much earlier notion of "Behavioralize the culture." It continues to be ABC’s goal to disseminate ABA internationally.
