Professional and ethical responsibilities in implementing behavioral interventions will also be discussed, such as documenting progress, receiving and providing supervision, and communicating with clients, caregivers, and supervisors. An internship in an ABA setting will provide supervision and practical experience in the topics covered in this course and is a co-requisite for this course.
