ABA Accreditation of Graduate Programs of Study
- 5 Downloads
ABA now offers accreditation for graduate programs of study in behavior analysis. Minimum standards include curriculum topics in (a) the principles of behavior, (b) within-subject research methodology and direct observation of behavior, (c) conceptual issues, and (d) behavioral interventions, as well as a thesis, dissertation, review paper, or general examination that is based on a behavior-analytic approach to problems or issues. Accreditation is viewed as one part of a process concerned with demonstrating that a person trained according to a given set of standards is more effective in utilizing the techniques of a science than a person who is not so trained.
