Applied Behavior Analysis, autism and higher education: Curricula Content and instructional methodology
2011 (English)In: / [ed] Carl Hughes, 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
The growing number of children diagnosed with autism, in congruency with the expansion of research supporting the effectiveness of applied behaviour analysis has lead to a global demand for competent professionals with expertise in applied behaviour analysis as it applies to autism. There are to date only a handful of university programs internationally recognized as meeting content criteria for certification in BA. The purpose of this presentation is to describe the outcome of a summit held at The University of North Texas in which professionals with expertise in areas of significance to higher education met and produced a series of articles published in a special edition of EOJBA. The relevance of the articles as a source for faculty and administration for developing effective courses in applied behaviour analysis and autism will be discussed in relation to curricula content, instructional methods, and issues pertinent for developing innovative, socially relevant programs.
