He worked and trained at the Spurwink School, the Groden Center, and the Kennedy Krieger Institute, was degreed at the University of Florida, was tenured at the University of Kansas, and is currently a Professor of Psychology and Director of the Behavior Analysis Doctoral Program and the Life Skills Clinic at Western New England University and an Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Dr. Hanley has published more than 100 chapters and articles in peer-reviewed journals in areas such as the assessment and prevention of problem behavior, teaching programs for young children, and evidence-based values. He is also a Fellow of the American Psychological Association (Division 25), a past Associate Editor of The Behavior Analyst, past Editor of Behavior Analysis in Practice, and current Editor of the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis.

During the event, Dr. Hanley expressed the importance of ABA therapy as it relates to individuals with autism. 

"It leads back to evidence. If folks aren't teaching in a way that has that kind of support, there's only a small chance a child with autism will benefit," Dr. Hanley said. "By contrast, if you have Behavior Analytic providers available, there's a much greater chance that their child will reach their potential. So it's terribly important to get more BCBAs out there, and we get more families to have access to those sorts of people."
