Within this course, the definition and characteristics of applied behavior analysis will be reviewed. Students will learn the distinction between behaviorism, the experimental analysis of behavior and applied behavior analysis. Additionally, critical terms, definitions and concepts in applied behavior analysis will be reviewed.

General principles will be reviewed in class. Students will be required to identify their own area of concentration and (e.g., curricular-based interventions for the treatment of children with developmental disabilities) with the support of the instructor, refine their skills in area of primary interest.
