Our Research at The Shape of Behavior
Under the direction of Dr. Domonique Randall BCBA-D, The Shape of Behavior is currently conducting innovative research in the area of inclusion for special needs children. Exciting studies underway investigating iPod Touch and text messages point to increased socializations of children with ASD in inclusive settings.
We thank Dr. Don Williams, BCBA-D for collaborative efforts to further research in the area of severe problem behavior in clinical settings. Dr. Williams is an expert in functional analysis and conducts research in the area of behavior assessment and treatment.
The Shape of Behavior has a team of professionals focused on the area of organizational behavior management topics including staff retention, performance management, performance pay, balanced and weighted score cards and more.
The Shape of Behavior collaborates with Sam Houston State University's Department of Special Education's Low Incidence Disabilities and Autism program. Together we are investigating early learning in children with autism spectrum disorder.
