Disability and Applied Behaviour Analysis

If you're an education, health or human services professional, or if you have a degree or diploma and want to specialize in the rewarding and challenging area of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), the concise, flexible and timely Disability and Applied Behaviour Analysis advanced certificate is for you. 

Why specialize in ASD and ABA?

    The sharp increase in the number of people diagnosed with ASD (estimated at one in 68 children in B.C., currently more than 13,000 children receive MCFD funding) has created a significant shortfall of qualified practitioners to plan and deliver effective evidence based education and treatment services in the community as well as specialized teachers in the K-12 school system. Applied Behaviour Analysis methodology can also be successfully incorporated into many other education, health and human service professions.
