Teaching associate and interim director of the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) program for the 22-23 academic year, Yev Veverka, had an opinion piece published in Spectrum titled “Applied behavior analysis and autism: Flawed application of a proven science [].” In the piece, she discusses how she started working in ABA since her own daughter was diagnosed with autism at age 4 and the struggles she has faced with her own ABA experiences. She also discusses how the current application of ABA in autism is flawed but that its delivery can be reformed and improved without abandoning the proven science behind it.
