What’s the Intermediate Practicum?
The intermediate practicum is the 2nd part of the 3-part practicum series offered at Western Michigan University through the Behavior Analysis Training System under Dr. Dick Malott. In the intermediate practicum, students will refine their Discrete Trial Training skills along with gaining other skills. Additional skills include conducting preference assessments, running portions of the VB-MAPP, graphing student data, handling and treating problem behavior, and skill acquisition. The practicum requires 10 hours of in-booth discrete trial training as well as a 1.5 hour seminar on Wednesday nights.
