The master’s program in Autism and Developmental Disabilities has a course sequence that is Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) approved. The program prepares individuals to be Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) and practitioners of evidence-based practices in the area of autism and developmental disabilities (A&DD). Our training focuses on evidence-based practices in A&DD, the use of scientist-practitioner methods, and culturally diverse populations. Our graduates own applied behavior analysis (ABA)-based clinics for children with autism; and they are employed as behavioral consultants, special education teachers, and ABA therapists.
