PSYC 6738A - Applications and Special Topics in ABA: Supervision and Autism Spectrum Disorder


(5 cr.)
This course covers two separate but related topics within applied behavior analysis (ABA): personnel supervision and management and autism spectrum disorder (ASD).  Personnel supervision and management includes case management, supervision goals and procedures, function-based supervision, and evaluation. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder with widely varying symptomatology and represents one of the primary client groups for whom behavior analysts provide services. Students examine ASD theory, research, and history as well as diagnostic issues and interventions for the treatment of autism.

This course covers tasks from the Board Certified Behavior Analyst® (BCBA®) Task List (5th ed.) and includes knowledge and skills foundational for the BCBA examination. The course is part of a Verified Course Sequence (VCS) verified by the Association for Behavior Analysis International as meeting specific coursework requirements, content hours, and faculty standards and meets coursework eligibility criteria for BCBA Eligibility Pathway 2 coursework requirements as part of the application for Behavior Analyst Certification Board, Inc.® (BACB®) examinations.
