Question 2

Dr. L. was an organizational behavioral consultant hired by the state office Department of Development Disabilities. He was assigned to an older, large residential facility for children and adults with developmental disabilities. His job was to help staff develop behavior programs for clients and to provide facility-side program consultation. Some of the staff thought that Dr. L was simply a new behavior analyst who was working with clients. They were unaware of the connection with the state office. As a result, they were often observed to be off-task including talking on their cell phones when they were supposed to be working with clients.

The administrators knew, of course, that Dr. L was hired by the state office. They began to pressure Dr. L not to report facility problems to the Department of Developmental Disabilities.
