Important note on continuing education: CalABA is accredited as a provider of continuing education (CE) by the following organizations: Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB); California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS); California Psychological Association (CPA); California Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Board (SLPAB). Each of these organizations has specific criteria regarding events and instructors that can be offered for CE. If a prospective presenter at the CalABA conference wishes to have her/his address, symposium, or workshop considered for CE (posters are not eligible), s/he must indicate that when the presentation is submitted, and submit additional materials, such as the vitae of the proposed CE instructor. The CalABA Professional Standards Committee then reviews each of those submissions and determines if the event and instructor meet the CE criteria of the relevant organizations. In short, not all presentations in the conference program can be offered for CE. If a presentation is not offered for CE, it is either because the submitting author did not request CE review or did not submit the necessary materials, or because the event and/or instructor did not meet CE requirements.
