College of Our Lady of the Elms

Master of Science in Autism Spectrum Disorders

College of Our Lady of the Elms



Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is a leading science in the assessment and treatment of severe problem behavior and skill deficits for individuals with and without disabilities. This 36 credit Master’s program will teach students how to work with children and adults with behavior problems or skill deficits. In fall 2018, the ABA course sequence at Elms was approved for the fifth edition task list by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB). Working from the latest BACB content guidelines, our faculty updated the curriculum of five different courses, and created two brand new courses as well. ABA students now have more opportunities to conduct research during their second year of study. They also have the option to take additional courses focusing on different applications of behavior analysis. HIGHLIGHTED COURSES Principles and Science behind ABA, Understanding and conducting research as a scientist-practitioner, Assessment of behavior concerns, Treatment of behavior concerns, Functional communication, Behavioral consultation, Classroom applications of ABA.
