Paper topic: Cultural considerations of behavior assessment in ABA
The topic I have chosen to discuss will be cultural considerations of behavior assessment in ABA. Cooper, Heron, & Heward (2020, p.419) state, Skinner defines culture as variables “arranged by other people”. Going into this field, I never considered others’ cultural backgrounds. I’ve had to learn how to put my biases aside and consider that everyone does things differently and that my way wasn’t the wrong way but that it’s how someone else would do it in their culture. I chose this topic because every individual I encounter is a part of at least one culture and culture has a substantial impact on a wide range of people’s behaviors. In the field of ABA, we must do a self-assessment of our own biases and values, and culture. This alone is a critical step to providing quality healthcare services. The purpose of my paper will be to practice, grow and inspire self-assessment that supports cultural responsiveness in the ABA field.
