Doing More with Less: Innovative Program Building in ABA and Special Education in a Rural Setting
Bethune, Keri S.; Kiser, Ansley
Rural Special Education Quarterly, v36 n1 p25-30 Mar 2017
There is a need for both special education teachers and Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) who are trained to work in rural school settings with students with disabilities and problem behaviors. The specific challenges presented by rural communities, such as diminished access to resources and fewer community partners, can make it difficult to create sustainable university programs to fulfill these needs. The purpose of this article is to describe one innovative approach to building a master's degree program leading to certification in special education and completion of the requirements to sit for the BCBA exam. Collaboration within the university and local community is discussed. Finally, program outcomes and future directions are discussed.
