Jacob Sadavoy, MSc, BCBA, LBA

Jacob has over 20 years of experience applying the principles of applied behaviour analysis in home programs, clinical and school-based setting as an ASD classroom teacher, educational consultant, and special education itinerant teacher. With the Global Autism Project, he oversees the clinical integrity of fifteen partner sites around the world with an international Telehealth supervisory model that is individualized to meet the learning needs of each partner site. To date, Jacob has travelled to thirteen different countries to collaborate with local clinicians to develop culturally-informed, socially significant, behaviour analytic strategies based on their local environment. Through these collaborations coupled with the need to monitor each partner’s current level of achievement, internal assessments have been created to measure the effectiveness of Telehealth supervision and the skills of the overall centre or school to ensure that partnership is progressing and that local teachers are applying and independently utilizing the principles of applied behaviour analysis for their learners. The ethical challenges of disseminating ABA effectively throughout the world culminated in Understanding Ethics in Applied Behavior Analysis: Practical Applications which is currently in print and will be available in 2019. Jacob's key areas of interest are ethics, supervision, sustainable dissemination, and services across the lifespan.

Review of Friman (2021) with Christen Russell, PhD, BCBA-D

Previously recorded

Abstract: From the beginning of recorded time human beings have assigned blame to persons who misbehave. The first prominent person to make an alternative case was Father Edward J. Flanagan, the founder of Boys Town, who proclaimed there was “no such thing as a bad boy, only bad environment, bad modeling, and bad teaching” (Oursler & Oursler, 1949, p. 7) in other words, bad circumstances. This paper will refer to this perspective as the Circumstances View of problem behavior and anchor it as the foundational idea for the field of behavior analysis. This paper will discuss the origins of the Circumstances View, the benefits that result from its adoption, reasons why its adoption is not more widespread, and suggestions for disseminating it more widely.
