Membership Organization Application Attestation

Preamble:
CASP is committed to promoting the use of evidence-based practice (EBP) for the clients served by our member organizations. To date, Applied Behavior Analysis has the strongest evidence for supporting persons on the Autism Spectrum. EBP in Applied Behavior Analytic service delivery entails the integration of clinical expertise, the best research evidence for delivering behavioral intervention, and well-articulated ethical standards. The best research evidence comes from sound experimental methodology that demonstrates functional control of teaching or clinical procedures over target behavior.

CASP acknowledges that some of the services provided by member organizations may have emerging efficacy research. CASP Member Organizations continually monitor, evaluate and alter their programs based on objective data and new research.

Attestation:

  • As the chief executive of this organization, I attest that the majority of our agency’s clinical/educational activities use ABA principles as the foundation for our treatment interventions.
  • I further attest that we do not use methods/practices that have been shown to be ineffective with individuals with autism.
  • I further attest that this agency is in good standing in the state(s) in which we operate and federal agencies with oversight responsibilities, including the IRS.

I have reviewed and agree to the terms of the CASP Member Logo Usage Agreement

In order to realize our mission, it is required that CASP member organizations promote and implement evidence-based practices within their agency.

Components of evidence-based practices include, but are not limited, to the following:

  • Task force findings related to evidence-based treatments are also considered.
  • Providers have the proper credentials and experience, as well as a respect for the scientific literature.
  • Those who carry out the actual intervention are well trained and supervised to ensure treatment integrity.
  • Carefully implemented instruction promotes initial success, ongoing gains, and ultimate mastery, as well as maximizes carryover across settings.
  • Objective data are collected and used to guide clinical decision-making.
  • Services are well coordinated, particularly when multiple disciplines are involved.  All providers use evidence-based practice and collect data to measure   progress.
  • Ongoing interventions efforts are adapted as new findings are published in peer-reviewed journals.*
