DescriptionSpecialize with a rewarding career cultivating the skillsets of those with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

The one-year Autism and Behavioural Sciences Ontario College Graduate Certificate program provides you with a firm grounding in the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), specifically in the application of these principles to Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) with children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ABA is a research-based and data-driven science that measures the relationship between environment, behaviour, and consequences. It is used to change behaviours that are socially significant.

Learn the characteristics of individuals with ASD, evidence-based practices in ABA, the professional code of ethics and the development and implementation of behavioural treatment plans. Gain practical experience working with clients and ABA treatment teams through two field placements, totalling 350 hours.
