ABA at Georgian Court: Applying research to solutions
The half-day program is led by faculty members David Wilson, Ph.D., an assistant professor of psychology, and Christopher Perrin, Ph.D., also an assistant professor of psychology. Both are Board Certified Behavior Analysts-Doctoral (BCBA-D) and together, they co-direct Georgian Court’s Applied Behavior Analysis Clinic. The clinic works to help families in search of affordable services for children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), a condition that requires considerable time and effort on behalf of parents struggling to access high-quality services.
Both faculty members are Board Certified Behavior Analysts-Doctoral (BCBA-D) with more than 15 years of experience providing ABA services to children and adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities. Under the supervision of Drs. Wilson and Perrin, graduate students in Georgian Court’s BACB-certified applied behavior analysis graduate program also spend time at the clinic using a variety of evidence-based strategies to address skill deficits and reduce challenging behaviors.
There is no charge for the July 22 workshop presentations, but registration is required. Contact Dr. Christopher Perrin to reserve seating and indicate if you are interested in earning CEUs.
