Application Of ABA: Emerging Use In Special Populations

This course will provide students with an introduction to the use of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) with a variety of special populations. Students review emerging literature and describe how ABA is being used to provide treatment to these populations. Students will compare the use of ABA with these populations with other forms of intervention and describe the benefits of ABA becoming a part of a multidisciplinary treatment approach. Special populations include criminal offenders, acquired brain injury, genetic disorders and gerontology.
