This intensive course provides professional training in applied behaviour analysis for a yearly intake of up to 8 students. It has approved course sequence status from the Behaviour Analysis Certification Board, an international body which sets standards for training and provides a route for securing applied Behaviour Analysis Certification status.
Classes are normally arranged to take place one day during the week with occasional additional classes taking place as required to accommodate visiting lecturers etc. Placement practice in behaviour analysis which is ongoing throughout the year, must be supervised by a privately engaged, but course approved supervisor.
Graduates of this course are skilled to engage in the ethical practice and research of ABA, to conduct functional behavioural assessments, implement and design behaviour support plans or learning/skill acquisition programmes, and analyse and display data to make informed decisions around intervention and learning needs. They understand the methods of research in behaviour analysis and demonstrate competency in conducting and writing up an applied research project to a publishable standard.
Graduates may expect to be employed by the Health Service Executive, autism services, voluntary agencies, private schools, parents, the Department of Education and Science, and Universities. They may also provide supervision to other behaviour analysts, within the guidelines of the relevant Codes of Ethics/Professional Practice.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
