Behavior Analysis Program: Practicum Sites


Briar Cliff University Behavior Analysis Clinic

Academic Logo

The Briar Cliff University Behavior Analysis Clinic provides a variety of behavior analytic services to underserved populations. Individuals will qualify for services regardless of diagnosis or medical insurance. The primary ages of clients range from 1.5 to 35 years, however, if the clinical team determines that they have the means, they will serve individuals outside of that range on a case by case basis. Behavior analysis faculty will supervise graduate and undergraduate students who will provide the direct services. All services will be at no cost; however, we do ask families to make a charitable donation to help support the continuing efforts of the clinic if they have the means. The primary areas of service include (but are not limited to): social skills, job training, early language skills, assessment and treatment of problem behavior, noncompliance, parent training, and academic interventions for college students.
Graduate Students: This clinic provide student the opportunity to gain practicum experiences with a variety of clients. This space will also be used for students’ thesis projects. Typically, there are not graduate assistantships, however, with donations there may be an occasional graduate assistantship. 
Undergraduate students: Gain practicum experiences and work collaboratively with graduate students.
Supervisor: Greg Schutte
