Applied Behavior Analysis

The Applied Behavior Analysis concentration prepares professionals to develop and deliver behavioral interventions and support for individuals in educational and habilitative settings. There are two strands in ABA:

Young Children and Families (YCF) prepares professionals to provide support and interventions to young, at-risk children and families with an emphasis on building relationships with and advocating for those groups.

School-Aged Children and Adult Populations (ABAS) prepares professionals who will implement and provide empirical support for behavioral interventions for a range of populations and pursue board certification as a behavior analyst.
