FULL DESCRIPTION

Behavioural Science Technician is a two-year diploma program that provides students with an opportunity to study applied behaviour analysis (ABA). This field of study helps prepare you for work that is often related to developmental disabilities, brain injury, gerontology, and behavioural disorders. A common misconception about this program is that it involves teaching students counselling and "talk therapy." It does not.

The themes in the program include:

  • behavioural theory and application
  • program development
  • scientific method
  • ethics and professionalism
  • diversity
  • general education with an emphasis on practical application in the field

Course work, practicum and employment is often related to autism and developmental disabilities; however, the program also covers behaviour analysis in the areas of dementia, brain injury and childhood disorders.

Students who elect to transfer to our degree program and/or continue their education in Behaviour Analysis may find employment opportunities in a variety of settings.

For applicants who have a bachelor's degree with a major in Psychology or a related discipline, we offer an intensive delivery of this program [Behavioural Science Technician Accelerated (C156)] leading to a diploma in less than one year.

Your Career

Graduates are employed in a variety of settings with diverse clinical populations of all ages who frequently present challenging behaviours. They may work to develop and implement behavioural interventions designed to teach skills and manage challenging behaviours.

Employment is often related to autism and developmental disabilities; however, it can also include work with clients and families experiencing the impact of dementia, brain injury and mental health issues.

Graduates may find employment in:

  • schools
  • treatment centres
  • residential facilities
  • community and vocational agencies

Educational Pathways

Graduates of any approved two-year Ontario College behavioural science technology program with a GPA of 3.0 or higher will be eligible to enter the bridging pathway into the third year of the Honours Bachelor of Behaviour Analysis degree program (S303).

International students who have successfully completed the Behavioural Science Technician (C146) may apply to the S303 Honours Bachelor of Behaviour Analysis (Year 3 Bridge) program stream by contacting Program Coordinator Andrew McNamara.

Future Study Options

Graduates of a health sciences program who have an interest in working in long-term care facilities should consider applying to our Interprofessional Complex and Long-Term Care postgraduate certificate (S417).
