ABSC 110 Applied Behavior Analysis for Practitioners
Behavior analysis is the study of human and non-human behavior from a natural science perspective. More specifically, behavior analysis takes an observation-based approach to understanding behavior. This approach has yielded several technologies of behavior that offer hope for a variety of populations including individuals with disabilities, families, organizations, and communities. The services of qualified, nationally board-certified behavior analysts are in great demand. This course is based on the Registered Behavior Technician Task List, but is offered independent of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB). This course is designed to meet the 40-hour training requirement for the RBT credential and also includes additional material. LEC.
