Early behavioral intervention is key in the successful treatment of autism. UMass Lowell's Department of Psychology, in collaboration with the UMass Medical School's Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center, has developed an online, graduate-level Applied Behavior Analysis Certificate Program.
Courses are taught by expert behavior analysts from around the country who work for some of the most respected centers for autism treatment and research.
In addition to the Applied Behavior Analysis Certificate Program, the University also offers two master's degree programs towards which many of the autism certificate program courses may be applied:
The Psychology Department at UMass Lowell prepares undergraduate and graduate students for careers in the field of psychology. Qualified and strongly motivated students will benefit from the Department's commitment to scholarship that is innovative, collaborative and interdisciplinary and that is relevant to diverse populations and to individual or community well-being.

In 2001, the Shriver Center became a part of the University of Massachusetts Medical School and was designated as one of its Centers of Excellence.

The total cost for required textbooks for students accepted into this program will be $600-$800 (depending on whether you buy books new or used). In addition, students will need to purchase a license for access to a video library and a digital textbook for a one-time fee of $100-$200. We also encourage all students who plan to take the BCaBA exam to purchase a license for a set of learning modules that will help students not only do well in our courses but also prepare for the BCaBA exam. This license provides continued access to the modules until students pass the exam. The cost for this license is $300-$500, depending on the length of the license.
Please note: Most of these costs will be incurred up front, when students enroll in their first course. Students will, however, continue to use the basic textbook, the digital textbook and the modules in all subsequent courses as they progress through the program.
