How Classes Work:
Our Workshop meets once a week in a private online classroom that can be easily joined by computer, laptop, iPad, iPhone, smartphone or tablet. Workshops are held weekly, in real time, with a live BCBA® instructor and are not recorded. Workshop Materials are mailed by default unless the GoGreen version is specified.
Our online classes are interactive and students are able to ask questions and participate just like in a regular classroom! During each week of the Workshop, students are assigned “homework” and a Mock Exam based specific sections of the Task List. In each class we will review and analyze the weekly Mock Exam, teaching students how to break down each test question!
A strong and secure Internet connection is recommended for this online Workshop.
