This program is designed for individuals who are looking for a career where every day is an opportunity to change someone’s life, who are passionate about helping people achieve their potential, and who see people's unique strengths rather than their limitations. Professionals looking to enhance their skills when working with people who face learning or behavioural challenges will benefit from this program.

This graduate certificate program trains students in the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). This scientific approach to human behaviour gives students the skills they need to carefully assess a situation and develop plans that teach new skills and reduce behaviours that get in the way of people being at their best.
