Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

Applied Behavior Analysis is the foundation of all treatment practices utilized at Evergreen. Functional behavioral assessment drives the programming decisions recommended for individual students. Data-based decisions influence all aspects of education and service delivery.

The Evergreen Center is a mature program with decades long organizational experience in applied behavioral analysis. Evergreen’s senior clinical and management team are ABA professionals.


Evergreen ABA Degree Programs

Institutions of higher learning have sought out Evergreen’s experience with applied behavioral analysis to offer ABA graduate degrees and certification courses where students gain practical experience.

A Master of Arts in Psychology (Applied Behavior Analysis track) is offered in cooperation with the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth and a Master of Education with concentration in Autism Spectrum Disorders is offered in cooperation with Cambridge College. Both programs also offer Board Certified Behavior Analysis (BCBA) Approved Course Sequences for individuals who have already completed a master's degree but desire to complete the BCBA examination requirements. Upon graduation and completion of the fieldwork requirement, students are eligible to sit for the BCBA examination.
