Tyanna graduated from Oakland University in 2013 with a degree in Psychology. During her undergraduate career she, like many, stumbled across applied behavior analysis (ABA), and fell in love with the impact that was being made with the clients she provided direct therapy to. Working with children was always a passion of hers, regardless of their ability but seeing how the science of ABA opened doors for those many didn’t believe in opened a whole new world for her. In mid-2017, Tyanna graduated from Wayne State University where she obtained her Masters of Education in Educational Psychology while also completing the necessary curriculum to be eligible for BACB certification.

Ep 23: Competence in Applied Behavior Analysis: It is more than a Checkmark* w/ Shawn Capell 

On this episode we are joined by co-author of Multiculturalism and Diversity in Applied Behavior Analysis, Shawn Capell. He gives us a peek inside if his book and his thoughts on the emergence of multiculturalism in the field of ABA. This is a CE elgible episode. Check the deets below: The process of becoming a behavior analyst includes several instances in which an individual is required to demonstrate specific competencies. Competence has become a hot-button topic within the field of ABA given recent world events; however, as a field we continue to ignore the area of cultural competency. As the science of ABA continues to reach the 4 corners of the earth, cultural competence and diversity training has now become a mandate for our science to continue and thrive. Culture impacts every aspect of service delivery and it is impossible to understate the importance of culturally competent behavior analysts. How can we (the science of ABA) address the lack of culturally competent behavior analytic professionals while providing services to individuals with ASD from an increasingly diverse cultural background? Presentation Objectives: Participants within this presentation will identify and operationally define cultural competence. Participants within this presentation will evaluate how culturally competence services delivery can affect both individuals, families, communities and the field of ABA at large. Participants within this presentation will conduct a self-assessment to identify both professional and personal competence in respect to cultural and diversity.
