CASP Assumes Oversight of ASD Practice Guidelines
The BACB has transferred the ASD Practice Guidelines (2nd ed.) to the nonprofit Council of Autism Service Providers (CASP). With a mission of cultivating, sharing, and advocating for provider best practices in autism services, CASP will now oversee and maintain the guidelines, which set forth ABA best practices for autism providers, and plans to publish the third edition next year. For more information about CASP, and to download a copy of the guidelines, visit casproviders.org/asd-guidelines. You can also listen to our podcast about the ASD Practice Guidelines transfer and read our blog.
