Program Information

School:St. Lawrence College
Faculty:Kingston Campus
Degree:Certificate
Field of Study:Behavioral Sciences
Description:Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can affect an individual’s ability to communicate, socialize and function effectively at home, school and in their community. Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) can be used to develop new skills including language, social and play skills, self-help skills, academics, motor skills, life skills and appropriate behaviour. Students in this highly specialized program learn to use a variety of positive approaches to develop the skills of individuals with ASD by reviewing relevant literature, developing intervention plans, implementing behaviour change programs, and collecting data to ensure intervention strategies effectively meet established goals.
As this is a graduate certificate program, students can expect an intensive workload. Classes combine theory with active learning experiences and group work. Field placements are available in a range of settings and some may require the use of a vehicle.
