Application Of ABA: Autism and Developmental Disabilities

Students will be introduced to the application of applied behaviour analysis (ABA) interventions for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and people with a developmental disability. Students will describe different diagnostic procedures and the diagnostic criteria for people with ASD and other developmental disabilities. Students will recognize the variety of treatments available for people with ASD and distinguish procedures that are evidence based. Students will learn how the principles of ABA are used within Intensive Behaviour Interventions (IBI), a common evidence-based intervention for people with ASD.
