About this course:
In this course, students will learn applications of behavior analytic theories, procedures, and methods as it pertains to special populations (e.g., autism spectrum disorders, emotional/behavioral disorders, and developmental disabilities). Specific behavioral challenges and research in the selected topics will be discussed. Emphasis will be placed on evidence-based practices and procedures to eliminate or minimize challenges, teach, and increase appropriate behaviors. Given the focus on application, students will be required to present four videos of themselves implementing or teaching a behavior change procedure, as well as a comprehensive written project evaluating behavior analytic principles.
It is advisable that you complete the following (or equivalent) since they are prerequisites for Advanced Applications in Behavior Analysis.
X 438.1 Foundations of Behavior Analysis, X 438.2 Functional Assessment in Behavior Analysis and X 438.4 Ethics in Behavior Analysis.
