The content of this course focuses on behavioural theory and application. The Applied Behaviour Analysis programme of Trinity College Dublin provides professional training in Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) for a yearly intake of up to 15 students.
Formal classes run from mid-September to late May and are normally held one day every week. Additionally, students meet with a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) for 1-2 hours every other week from October to September. Dissertation research is initiated during the academic year of Year 2 and continued and finalised during the summer months. Placement practice in behaviour analysis must be facilitated by an external BCBA. Students receive continuous assessment and feedback through their regular supervision sessions and participation in class activities. Placement practice in ABA is also reported at intermediate and end points during the year. Students must maintain a portfolio of their work throughout the course.
