Announcing the Spring 2013 #ABAchat schedule. As always, we welcome people from all areas of the field to join in a casual discussion on topics and issues relating to Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). For more information on what #ABAchat is and how to join, please read this.
A small change to note: we’ll be starting at 9:30 p.m. EST (instead of our usual 9 p.m. EST)
Topics were suggested by #ABAchat participants; however, other topic suggestions and offers to moderate/host the chats by people other than myself are always welcome. I often moderate the chats but I am by no means an expert at the topics being discussed. If you don’t see a topic that interests you, please offer to contribute to our #ABAchat community by hosting a chat, suggest articles to share etc.
