ABA-6909 - Behavior Analytic Practice and Autism Spectrum Disorder

Semester Credits: 3 Weeks: 12

In this course you will learn how to apply behavior analytic practices to modify socially significant behaviors in individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The course content will include identifying the diagnostic criteria of ASD and specific challenges related to social communication, behavior, and cognitive ability.  You will analyze and then identify appropriate function-based behavior analytic interventions designed to specifically address the daily challenges experienced by individuals diagnosed with ASD.  Examples of this may include, but are not limited to, antecedent interventions (i.e. visual schedules, functional communication training, stimulus prompts, curricular accommodations and modifications), teaching strategies (i.e., discrete trial training, shaping and chaining procedures, task analysis) and consequence interventions (i.e. reinforcement schedules, punishment and extinction).
