BENITEZ, Priscila et al. Development and learning center: an interdisciplinary case study in applied behavior analysis. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2020, vol.22, n.1, pp. 351-367. ISSN 1516-3687.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) affects different areas of development. The application of behavior analysis by an interdisciplinary team of professionals has shown promising results. The aim was to describe an interdisciplinary case study, involving an intervention with a child with ASD, designed using the principles of behavior analysis. The procedure involved five phases: evaluation of the child's repertoire, interdisciplinary meeting, curriculum implementation, parent training, and weekly interdisciplinary meetings. The results section presents the evaluation data, organization of the curriculum, and analysis of the case study, drawing on the notion of interlocking behavioral contingencies. Each team member in their specific area of expertise played an important role in designing a structured, individualized, varied curriculum. This experience provides an initial reflection on the design and implementation of interventions for children with ASD, involving their parents and professionals.
