Subject: PT-related Sessions at ABA 1999

Addresses removed for privacy>

" I have always viewed the Association for Behavior Analysis (ABA) Conventions as mini 5-day "universities." There, the whole of behavioraldom is gathered, including many PT'ers. Well, ABA has posted its 1999 Convention Program on its website. I have gone through the Program and have culled out the Precision Teaching, Standard Celeration Chart, Generative Instruction, and any sessions otherwise related to these areas. Herewith, I present you with the PT-oriented sessions at ABA. Perhaps this may help your planning for the convention. (And if I missed any sessions that are PT-related, I apologize in advance. Please let me know if there are other PT-related sessions that I overlooked. There are many sessions at ABA. So, it's easy to overlook items.)

For the full entries for the Workshops, please see the ABA Convention Program. BTW, the ABA website address for the program is: http://www.wmich.edu/aba/conv1999/
