Level 3: ABA and Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) Development and Implementation Course

LEVEL: Beginner and Intermediate

This course involves homework that may require sending video clips to our BCBA. A strong internet bandwith is required. 

Special Learning's ABA and Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) Program Development and Implementation course is designed to teach students how to create and implement an ABA intervention program to expand their knowledge and abilities of ABA programming. 

This course delivers training incorporating a combination of videos, situation-based scenarios, and real life examples to deepen a student's knowledge of ABA and how to apply that knowledge in a treatment setting.

This course will teach students the fundamentals of how to create and implement a quality ABA program. Students will learn the mechanics of developing a treatment/intervention plan (curriculum), from intake to generalization and maintenance. The course will utilize real life materials, tools, software and other resources used by teachers and clinicians in the field to ensure continuity of knowledge and a better transition from theory to practice.

Special Learning provides all the materials necessary to successfully complete the Course. These include a handout that can be used to take detailed notes for each session. Throughout the program, additional free resources will be available to enhance your learning.  

The course will begin by reviewing basic ABA principles and strategies to ensure that students possess the foundational knowledge required to move forward in the course. The course will progress over a period of 10 sessions, during which additional training and education will be provided while a mock intervention program is developed and implemented. A final project will conclude the course and provide a benchmark for the knowledge gained.
