With an increase in autism diagnoses and rising budget concerns, there is a need for comprehensive and cost-effective training in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Sixty-four participants who lived with, worked with, or wished to work with children who had autism underwent either a 2-day classroom training or a 2-day online training. Knowledge of ABA and confidence were assessed prior to and following training, and post-training reactions were examined.
Results showed that participants in both the classroom and online training groups significantly increased their knowledge of ABA and confidence scores following training, and reactions to training in both groups were positive. No significant differences were found on any measure given between groups. Implications of this study are that this video-based training program designed by Behavior Frontiers, LLC, is an effective training tool and that either version of this training can be implemented to fit participants' needs.
