Here is what one of our students had to say after completing the ABA Online Training Course:
"This was my first online class and I was delighted. I learned more than I did in my whole master's program. I am still re-watching the video's to help myself learn better. It was a great course and just what I needed. I will continue to use it as a resource."

"I just completed Session number 5. I'm loving this program! I'm learning so much, and I actually just got hired yesterday as a teacher in an Autism classroom!"
