ABA utilizes principles of learning to improve socially significant behaviour (behaviour that is important in the individual's life). Empirical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of ABA across many different settings, populations and behaviours.  ABA is one of the only interventions with evidence of effectiveness in producing comprehensive and lasting improvements for children with ASD (e.g., gains in IQ, language and communication, social sills, self-help skills, academics, etc.).  ABA programs for children with ASD and/or developmental disabilities are individualized and focus on systematically teaching small measurable units of behaviour.  Early Intensive Behaviour Intervention (EIBI) is the intensive application of the principles of ABA. 


Training Objectives:

Upon successful completion of the training program participants will be able to:

  • Describe ABA, ASD and EIBI
  • Implement both structured and naturalistic teaching methodologies used in ABA programs (DTT, NET, shaping, chaining, prompting)
  • Generalize skills using a variety of techniques
  • Identify and describe the ABCs of learning
  • Understand the functions of behaviour
  • Identify some of the strategies used for managing problem behaviour
  • Help promote appropriate behaviours

Who should attend the ABA training program?

Those seeking positions as instructor therapists, special education teachers, resource teachers, integration aides, other paraprofessionals or professionals working in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and/or developmental disabilities; as well as parents, guardians or family members of children with ASD and/or other developmental disabilities.  


Training format:

The training will include lectures, videos, small group discussions, live modeling and role-playing.  A quiz covering the topics discussed will be given after each unit. There will be two final exams: one written and one practical.



To receive the Gold Centre's "Attestation of Attendance in Recognition of the Successful Completion of 30 Hours of Training in ABA" participants are required to be present for the 30 hours of training and pass the quizzes and exams with a cumulative grade of at least 70%.  A Gold Centre Attestation indicates to employers that you have acquired professional skills and that you have benefited from both theoretical and practical training that has been delivered by a BCBA. With this Attestation you may seek employment under the guidance of a qualified ABA consultant.
