Panel: Fostering Successful Leaders in Autism and Disability Services


October 4


3:10 PM - 4:00 PM


Applied Behavior Analysis & Autism

With increased awareness and funding, Autism and Disability service providers are growing. This creates an increased need for management and supervisory roles within the system of care. Managers and supervisors usually rise to the top from a pool of clinicians based on successful clinical skills.  What business leaders are finding is that successful clinicians do not often have the skill repertoire for management and leadership positions.

This panel comprises business leaders and Organizational Behavior Management experts to discuss what organizations can do to identify clinical staff that have the disposition and potential to acquire leadership capabilities and strategies to help foster and train clinical staff into successful leaders.
