Abstract: The field of behavior analysis is no stranger to systematic evaluation and program modification. As behavior analysts, we are responsible for providing equitable, fair, and culturally informed services. However, despite the prevalence of autism existing independent of race, people of color are more likely to be misdiagnosed and experience delayed access to treatment when compared to their white peers. The panelists will address how our field must engage in self-evaluation to promote competent service delivery and equitable access to intervention. In a solutions-focused conversation, the panelists will explore actions individuals, organizational leaders, higher education, and our science can take to recreate systems and ensure accountability for change in the practice of ABA in the United States.
