Field Work 1 and Seminar

Students will be introduced to the experience of observing and implementing Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)-based procedures and interventions in a practical setting. Students will work in a field setting that provides clinical services rooted in ABA. Examples of potential agency environments for this field placement might include children's behavioural treatment clinics, residential agencies, correctional facilities, rehabilitation centres and centres for treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In addition to the 1-day a week field placement experience student will also attend a weekly 1 hour seminar meeting. During the seminar meetings students share knowledge and experiences about their placement settings, discuss issues and complete assignments that integrate theory with practice.
