What is Generalization in Applied Behavior Analysis?

The subject matter experts provide the building blocks for understanding the generalizing of behavior across the setting, time, and people. Participants should gain a working understanding of generalization as a pillar in Applied Behavior Analysis. 

What role does Maintenance play in this framework?

This course covers evidence-based, best practices for implementing generalization and maintenance within your practice. The subject matter experts will provide examples and potential pitfalls in using these tactics.
