Program Description:

Students studying Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) learn to affect socially significant behavioral changes in individuals with developmental disabilities—from those in regular educational settings to those who wish to improve performance or master skills in a variety of ways. Using a natural science approach, ABA professionals systematically collect and analyze data to validate incremental changes in observable behavior.

Students in the D.C. Campus' ABA master's program gain experience and exposure in a wide variety of ABA applications and specialties, including instructional design, precision teaching, and verbal behavior. Our program is distinctive in that students receive a solid foundation in the principles of clinical psychology, in addition to thorough training in ABA techniques—preparing them to work with a range of populations in both clinical and business/industry settings.

TCSPP has established partnerships with local public and private schools to provide students with the unique opportunity to gain professional preparation by applying what they have learned about ABA technologies to special education diagnoses and school administration. Opportunities to gain real-world experience provide graduates with valuable skills to take with them into the work force.

The ABA course sequence is approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board® and graduates are eligible to sit for national certification by the Behavior Analysis Certification Board®.
