The Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) programs at the Pitt School of Education produce practitioners who are qualified to assess, design, implement, and evaluate applied behavior analysis programs — with a special emphasis on developmental disabilities and behavioral health issues.
Our ABA programs are approved by the national Behavior Analyst Certification Board. Additionally, our programs fulfill the evidence-based coursework requirements of the Pennsylvania Behavior Specialist Licensure. Successful completion of the coursework and supervised practicum experiences will prepare you to seek board certification as behavior analysts.
Demand for professionals in applied behavior analysis is growing. School districts, mental health providers, and social service agencies are seeking to support a growing number of children with unique behavioral challenges.
