Russell W. Maguire is a behavior analyst with more than 35 years of applied and research experience. He is currently an associate professor and chair of the Department of Behavior Analysis at Simmons University. Maguire is a doctoral-level Board Certified Behavior Analyst® (BCBA-D®).
Maguire’s professional experience can be divided into two areas. First, he has an extensive applied and successful history of working with individuals with developmental disabilities (e.g., autism spectrum disorders, mental disability, etc.) and severe challenging behaviors (e.g., serious aggression, self-injury, eating disorders, etc.). Second, he has taught at the college graduate-school level, in the fields of special education and behavior analysis, for more than 25 years. As a consequence, Maguire is able to implement the cutting edge of behavior analysis research to develop innovative and state-of-the-art applied behavior analytic treatment.
Maguire is a published researcher and frequent presenter at local, state, and national professional conferences, particularly in the areas of stimulus control and stimulus equivalence.
