Abstract: Home-based programs for children with autism have a long history in the practice of applied behavior analysis. Currently, practitioners who have home-based businesses can be found across the country as well as abroad. This panel will discuss the advantages and the disadvantages of starting a business practicing applied behavior analysis in the client’s home. Additionally, the panel will discuss the planning that must happen prior to taking your first client, what to do now that you have a client, and how to run an organized and well - managed business. Ethical and legal issues will also be discussed. The purpose of this panel is to provide information to other practitioners who are already in a home-based business as well as considerations for those who are contemplating starting a home-based program.
