Click the link to the left to begin the tutorial. The tutorial is self-paced and can be completed at any time. The tutorial is not lead by an instructor, but if you have questions or problems with the tutorial, you can e-mail us here.

As you progress through the tutorial, you will not be able to save your place. If you need to stop the tutorial before it is complete, I would suggest adding a bookmark in your web browser to the page you stop on, so that you can return to it easily at a later time.

Some pages will have blanks that you can fill in. Filling in the answers in the blanks is not required, but it would help you learn the material if you will fill in the response. You don't need to write the response, just thinking of the correct answers is fine. Following the advice of B.F. Skinner, most questions are provided as fill-in-the-blank rather than multiple choice.

It will also provide information for parents on how to set up a home-based ABA intervention program for a child with autism.
