Terrific option for K-12 teachers wishing to enhance their special education skills while working towards a higher pay level. Required step for Behaviour Consultants and other professionals towards becoming BACB® Certified Assistant Behaviour Analysts (BCaBA)®.
Why specialize in ASD and ABA?
The sharp increase in the number of people diagnosed with ASD has created a significant shortfall of qualified practitioners to plan and deliver effective evidence based education and treatment services in the community as well as specialized teachers in the K-12 school system. Applied Behaviour Analysis methodology can be successfully incorporated into many other education, health and human service professions.
