CS 900 - Intensive Supervised Practicum
This practicum is designed to provide students hands-on experience in implementing, evaluating, and participating in the development and revision of behavior analytically based instruction and related procedures for children with autism, autism spectrum disorders or other related disabilities. This practicum is individualized for each student to ensure that she/he benefits fully from the experience. Formal training will be available in service delivery settings that institute a behavioral approach. A Certified Licensed Behavior Analyst will deliver on-site supervision. A Certified Licensed Behavior Analyst in a group setting will conduct supervision seminar weekly. The practicum curriculum meets part of the requirements set forth by NYS to become a Licensed Behavior Analyst. For students who are also seeking a national certification through the BACB, this course is aligned with the Fourth Edition Task List of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board. Additionally, this course meets the requirements for part of the intensive practicum supervision hours required by the BACB. Students seeking both LBA and BCBA certification, must be supervised on-site by professionals who are dually licensed as an LBA/BCBA.
