About

This is an intensive full time course which aims to ensure that students become efficient in the practical application of the principles of applied behaviour analysis, with particular regard to persons with autism and other developmental disabilities and/or children and adolescents in care or special programmes, and/or those clients presenting learning and/or behavioural challenges in school.

Overview

The content of this course focuses on behavioural theory and application. This course provides professional training in Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) for a yearly intake of up to 15 students.

Formal classes run from late September to late May and are normally held one day every week and on occasional weekends. 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. 

Classes are normally arranged to take place on one weekday with additional classes taking place on occasional weekends as required. 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.
