Course Description

This course focuses on behavioral assessments. Specifically, the course covers the following areas: identifying the problem behavior, conducting a functional assessment (indirect and descriptive assessments), understanding the different types of functional analysis, developing function-based behavior goals, and developing a function-based behavior treatment plan. The course also covers other assessments such as preference assessments, reinforcer assessments, Vineland and VB-MAPP. Lastly, other aspects of applied behavior analysis and their application to clinical practice and research are also covered in this course.

Notes

Important Note: Completion of the UCSB PaCE ABA program does not result in BCBA or QBA certification. Individuals seeking certification must take and pass an examination with the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) or Qualified Applied Behavior Analysis Credentialing Board (QABA). While courses in this certificate program may count toward the educational requirements for becoming eligible to take the examination, completion of this certificate program will not, in itself, result in BCBA or QBA certification.
