This course is designed as an introduction to the discipline of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and its’ application to the treatment of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. ABA is the design, implementation, and evaluation of environmental modifications to produce socially significant improvement in human behavior and includes the use of direct observation, measurement, and functional analysis of the relations between environment and behavior. ABA uses antecedent stimuli and consequences, based on the findings of descriptive and functional analysis, to produce practical change.
