ABA Program Receives Five-year Grant from the U.S. Department of Education

The Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Program has received a highly competitive five-year $1,195,721 grant from the Department of Education, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services. Project iSED: Advancing Interdisciplinary Services for Students with Severe Emotional and Behavioral Disorders will prepare 33 scholars to serve as either Board Certified Behavior Analysts or School Social Workers who can collaboratively design and deliver evidence-based instruction and intensive individualized interventions and supports (PBIS) in natural environments, classroom, and schools for school-aged children with severe emotional and behavioral disorders.

This effort represents a collaboration between the ABA Master’s Program and the Master’s in Social Work (MSW) Program within CBCS. They will also partner with three Florida school districts (Hillsborough, Pasco, and Manatee).

Dr. Catia Cividini-Motta will serve as the Project Director. Drs. Kwang-Sun Cho Blair, Kimberly Crosland, and Alison Salloum from Social Work will serve at Project Co-Directors.
