Instructional strategies utilizing the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) are both effective and evidence-based. Practitioners working with special populations may find that a refresher in the specific methodologies used in ABA is warranted; others might be seeking to develop their expertise for the first time.

This rigorous 40-hour course is designed to provide those with and without previous experience with the opportunity to demonstrate both knowledge and application of these strategies. Participants will receive instruction through a cooperative partnership between the University of Washington Autism Center and Northwest Educational Service District 189. Participants will be required to attend all sessions in order to receive the full allocation of available clock hours and the certificate of completion. Participants in this training will:

* Examine and apply instructional strategies utilizing the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis;
* Collect and analyze student data;
* Develop intervention and instructional plans based upon data collection.

Instruction provided in this course meets the coursework requirements for those pursuing Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) Certification. Other requirements apply and those interested in pursuing this option are encouraged to visit this website for additional requirements: https://bacb.com/rbt/ (https://bacb.com/rbt/).
