This Master of Science (MSc) programme is designed to meet your needs as a practitioner to improve socially significant behaviours in individuals with development disabilities through behavioural assessment and application of evidence-based interventions. Students will gain skills to work as practitioners in the areas of education, rehabilitation and behaviour support. The principles and strategies of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) can be applied to a range of human behaviour, including social skills, academic and adaptive skills, as well as to support individuals with challenging behaviour. In addition, the programme aims to provide students with training and supervision to conduct applied research with clinical populations. Applied Behaviour Analysis is comprised of evidence-based practices, which are often recommended as the best approach for working with people with intellectual disabilities or pervasive developmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder.
