Doctoral program in applied behavior analysis (ABA) for autism  

Caldwell College in Caldwell, New Jersey will use its 2009 Congressionally-directed grant of $238,000 to establish a doctoral program in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) geared to preparing professionals at the highest levels to assume leadership roles in developmental services, special education and mental health with a primary focus on working with individuals with autism. The proposed Ph.D. degree program builds on Caldwell's uniqueness and leadership in this arena as the only college in New Jersey with a Master's Program in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and the only Special Education Master's with a concentration in autism and ABA. The Ph.D. degree program will complete the continuum of educational preparation and training for teaching professionals within the College's Center for Excellence in Teaching that was established in 2001 for the purpose of recruiting, preparing and retaining quality teachers and school superintendents for K-12 classrooms. Through this Congressional Award, Caldwell will be in a position to assist in addressing the severe shortage of qualified professionals able to serve the growing number of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in New Jersey.
