The Bachelor of Arts Degree in Applied Behaviour Analysis - Autism is a unique degree program in British Columbia. At this time, it is the only baccalaureate program in Western Canada that blends rigorous academic training and professional supervised experience. This program has tremendous potential to improve the lives of families who are currently struggling to find competent professionals in the field of behaviour analysis.
At present it is estimated that 1 in 88 children meet the criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorder and applied behaviour analysis is the only scientifically validated treatment that has been shown to be effective. In British Columbia alone, there are nearly 1,000 children under the age of 6 and 6,000 children over the age of 6 who receive funding from the Ministry of Child and Family Development for services, and many of these families cannot access well-trained professionals. Graduates of the program will have completed academic coursework and supervised experience towards eligibility to write the Behavior Analyst Certification (BACB) exam to become an assistant Behaviour Analyst and work under the supervision of a Board Certified Behaviour Analysts.
