Program description - September 2024

This fully online graduate certificate program addresses the fields of autism and behavioural science, specifically the syndromes associated with the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in children across various contexts including home and school environments. Students will examine, apply, and evaluate current theories, practices and treatment methodologies used to treat ASD and incorporate modified practices and procedures appropriate to the child and the situation. The program emphasizes the design and implementation of effective behavioural treatment plans. Learning to work within a team environment and with families are key elements of the program. The foundations of ethical thinking, professional codes of ethics, and the different perspectives and rationale for ethical decision making within a behavioural framework are introduced.



  • This program is delivered online. Field placements will require in-person travel to the field site.
