We are researchers from Georgia State University’s Learning Sciences Department in the College of Education and Human Development. We are conducting research to look at cultural, linguistic, and racial diversity in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Although the field of ABA has made strides towards describing diversity in some ways (e.g., the status of women in the field), there is a lack of research that examines how well the field includes people from cultural, linguistic, or racially diverse backgrounds. Your responses will help add to understanding of how we can improve future professional development, support, and programs. You are eligible if you have completed or are currently enrolled a training program that leads to eligibility to become certified at any of the four certification tiers (i.e., RBT, BCaBA, BCBA, or BCBA-D) from the Behavior Analyst Certification Board, or are a professional that has completed programming that leads to a license, or certification that is practicing in the field of ABA (e.g., special education teacher; SLP). Participation in the study is voluntary and all responses will anonymous.
Participation in this study should take only 15-20 minutes of your time. If you are willing to participate, please follow the link below. We appreciate your consideration in helping with this important study and look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Principal Investigators Please share with any current students, program alumni, colleagues, and employees!
