More Attention for ABA

Posted on Wednesday, June 5, 2013

Western Michigan University's Department of Psychology continues to garner national recognition for its Behavioral Analysis Program and the diagnosis and treatment of the Autism Spectrum. The Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) Conference was held in Minneapolis this year, and Broncos were in the spotlight.

Several graduate students from the program were presenters at the conference, which had more than 200 WMU Alumni in attendance.

Dr. Richard Malott, professor in the WMU Psychology Department, completed his term as the international organization's president and another Bronco stepped into the role. WMU alumna Dr. Linda Hayes (MA '79, Psychology; PhD '83) is a professor at the University of Nevada-Reno and was a student of Dr. Malott's at WMU.
