This year’s event theme is “EMPOWER,” and it promises to be a power-packed three-day conference. The first day will consist of workshops, followed by two full days of conference sessions. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with renowned researchers and clinicians from across the United States, as well as participate in important conferences.

It will provide evidence in the practice of ABA: The evidence on which current practice rests, the questions that must be asked about the evidence supporting many claims that are being made today, and some research questions that must be addressed if the practice is to advance and remain science-based.
