The application of program evaluation to behavioral analytic treatment programs for learners with autism spectrum disorder is a useful and necessary activity to inform practitioners and other stakeholders of the efficacy of their programs and to promote adherence to best-practice treatments.
Program evaluation provides an empirical answer to the question, “How are we doing?” While an agency may have a general feel about program processes and outcomes based on dimensions such as staff turnover, staff performance, and consumers’ individual outcomes, a more systematic measure of these and other dimensions coupled with standardized measurement can reveal overall strengths and weaknesses of the program.
This process can assist with the alignment of the service with best practices and provide agencies with useful information that can be utilized to improve learning outcomes for specific learners and/or strategic planning across the program.
