ABA 505: Behavioral Assessment

This course will concentrate on behavior change strategies based on principles discovered in the experimental analysis of behavior and replicated in the field of applied behavior analysis. Specific strategies for accelerating and decelerating various behaviors will be discussed, along with the theoretical underpinnings of each procedure. Issues of generalization of behavior change will be explored, as they relate to the ethical use of treatment methodologies.
