Applied behavior analysis
Autism spectrum disorder
Daniel Conine is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst – Doctoral and an assistant professor in the Department of Learning Sciences. He serves as program coordinator for the college’s applied behavior analysis master’s program. Conine conducts research on behavior-analytic interventions for individuals with autism, with an emphasis on skill acquisition and verbal behavior. His research focuses on improving the efficiency of intervention by targeting behavioral cusps, incorporating preference and reinforcer assessments, and studying strategies that promote generalization, maintenance and emergent learning.
Conine received his doctorate and master’s degrees in psychology from the University of Florida and his bachelor’s degree from Denison University. He has worked in a variety of clinical and research contexts throughout his career, providing behavior-analytic services to children and their families, including early intervention, the treatment of severe problem behavior and caregiver training. Conine has published research in such journals as the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, Behavior Analysis in Practice, the Journal of Behavioral Education and The Analysis of Verbal Behavior.
