Overview

Learning and teaching will focus on consolidating the knowledge and skills developed through taught modules, and supporting application of learning to applied behaviour analytic practice in the workplace or comparable environment. Students will receive supervision to undertake assessment and intervention with individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities. In the course of group and/or individual supervision sessions they will be expected to apply knowledge from taught modules to the specific individuals or circumstances with which they are working. They will be directed to academic and professional literature of specific relevance to their individual work and they will be encouraged to behave professionally and ethically both in their practice and in their interactions with other developing professionals in supervision sessions.
