New York, NY (PRWEB) October 24, 2012
With partnerships in Ghana, India, Peru, and Kenya, the Global Autism Project has seen the challenges of working in and among culturally diverse clientele. Among the greatest of these challenges has been providing high quality services with a high standard of ethics in a culturally sensitive way. This is why the Global Autism Project consistently, coherently, educates professionals who work with individuals with autism in many countries in Applied Behavior Analysis.
ABA remains the only evidence-based treatment for autism spectrum disorder. It is often recommended that these services be delivered by professionals with board certification in behavior analysis. This certification requires coursework and supervision, along with continuing education after certification is given.
Given these factors, the demand for behavior analysis is increasing. With the rise in the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder, along with changes in insurance law, finding the time to attend conferences can be a challenge. "I know that as a working mom, it was nearly impossible for me," says Global Autism Project Clinical Director Ann Beirne, "Even when we do find the time, finding new and exciting continuing education courses can be difficult."
The Global Autism Project would like to announce that the benefit of their experience is now available to anyone seeking to maintain board certification in behavior analysis as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) or Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA). These courses are available completely online and can be taken anytime after purchase, allowing professionals the flexibility to fulfill their continuing education requirements without taking time from their work. The first of their course offerings, Cultural Sensitivity and Evidence Based Practice has been well received and is now required of our global volunteer program (SkillCorps) team members.
Whether you are seeking to maintain certification, expand your skills, or simply learn more about services for individuals with autism spectrum disorder around the world, these courses offer a unique perspective. To access them, simply go to the courses page.
