Program Highlights

Unique Program

First post-diploma/degree credential of its kind west of Manitoba.

Best Instructors

All courses are taught by Board Certified Behaviour Analysts.

Flexible Options

To accommodate working professionals, courses are offered online, with 2 courses per semester over three semesters. 

Career Advancement

Terrific option for K-12 teachers wishing to enhance their special education skills while working towards a higher pay level. Required step for Behaviour Consultants and other professionals towards becoming BACB® Certified Assistant Behaviour Analysts (BCaBA)®.

Why specialize in ASD and ABA?

The sharp increase in the number of people diagnosed with ASD 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 be successfully incorporated into many other education, health and human service professions.
