Applied Behavior Analysis Programs
We train behavior analysts who work with individuals diagnosed with autism, autism spectrum, or related disorders.
We have designed a comprehensive curriculum that provides theory, training and supervision in behavior analysis as it relates to individuals with autism, autism spectrum disorders or related disorders. Our faculty members include Board Certified Behavior Analysts, Licensed Behavior Analysts, Licensed Psychologists and practitioners in related disciplines. They bring their experiences in the field into the classroom.
As a behavior analyst, and a graduate of our program, you will be well-prepared to provide individualized, intensive therapy using positive reinforcement to improve learning. While behavior analysis is primarily used to improve academic learning in children, you will also learn how to use these techniques to improve the life skills of adolescents and adults.
Master’s Degree or Post-Master’s Certificate
We offer a master’s degree in applied behavior analysis, and a post-master’s advanced certificate if you already have a master’s and would like to specialize in behavior analysis.
Online or On-Campus
You can complete your coursework asynchronously online, at your own convenience, or on our centrally located Manhattan campus. Or a mix of the two, taking some classes online and some on campus, as it works for your schedule.
