Children with autism, and their families, living in Metro Vancouver are fortunate to have access to Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts (BCaBAs), many of whom are educated and trained at local universities. However, for children and families living outside of the lower mainland, access BCBAs/BCaBAs is limited and accessible university training programs are non-existent.
In this presentation, Dr. Stock will articulate his vision for meeting the education and training needs of British Columbians in communities outside of Metro Vancouver, in order to build capacity and access to ABA services. He will focus on the development and delivery of quality on-line graduate courses for training professionals and on-line modules for training parents. Additionally, Dr. Stock will describe how the Special Education department might address upcoming changes to the requirements for training Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs).
