Behavior analytic literature provides some excellent guidelines for implementing the principles of behavior analysis with clients. For example, the dimensions of behavior analysis have demonstrated the importance of describing behavior in observable terms, demonstrating functional relations, providing replicable procedures, intervening to improve the lives of the organisms we work with, making a durable behavior across settings, and ensuring the procedures work (Baer, Wolfe, & Risley, 1968; Baer, Wolfe, & Risley, 1987). Following these guidelines is critical to success, whether you work with typically developing people, those with a diagnosis, or non-human organisms. To do this well in the early stages of your career requires structured support from behavior analysts with a history of successfully building behavioral repertoires.
