Weekly ABA chat!
Join in on Wednesday nights at 9pm (EST) for a Twitter “chat” hosted by a Tricia-Lee Keller, also known as Behaviouratplay! The live chat usually lasts about an hour, however you can follow and add to the conversation or follow at your leisure throughout the week by using the #ABAchat hashtag. Here is a link to Tricia’s Behaviourist At Play Tumblr site which has additional information on the weekly chat: Behaviourist At Play.
