In today’s world, with the cost of education, healthcare, and clinical service provision continuing to rise, the use of evidence-based practices to address challenging behavior in an effective, but efficient manner, is paramount. Applied behavior analysis (ABA) offers educators, clinicians, business owners, school and health care administrators, and families a valuable approach to instruction, personnel management, and treatment of challenging behaviors that may impede successful performance in daily activities and routines. This approach is based on the careful use of behavioral assessment methodologies, empirically-driven measurement and analysis, and the selection and implementation of function-based treatment strategies.

The Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) program at Bay Path University provides graduate level instruction and supervision. It prepares students to practice as scientists and clinicians in settings committed to the use of evidence-based behavioral treatment to address behavior and performance challenges. Graduates of the program qualify to pursue credentialing in ABA and advance in professional settings that provide ABA services. Program options include a verified course sequence through the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB®), as well as, advanced instruction in verbal behavior, staff training and supervision, and behavioral education systems.
