Collaboration in the field of behavior analysis in the context of autism provision is frequently discussed in terms of interdisciplinary collaboration with other professionals. While this practice is essential to providing effective services to individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), collaborative relationships should extend to others beyond the interdisciplinary context, for example the community stakeholders. Therefore, this panel will discuss collaboration strategies used in successful service delivery and academic programs. These strategies widen the scope of traditional interdisciplinary models to include collaborative relationships with: (a) direct consumers; (b) indirect consumers; (c) members of the immediate community: and (d) members of the extended community. Focusing on building relationships to promote applied behavior analysis (ABA) as a science for behavior change on a broader level which goes beyond direct care.
