"Career pursued: School Psychology"
“My favorite thing about the ABA track was the dual focus on clinical experience and scientific training. I felt this combination provided not only the best services for the children but at the same time provided high quality training for me as an undergraduate.”  
“The training provided at ICD has been invaluable


"Career pursued: Health Administration"
“From graduate students, to professors, to peers -there is no better support network than the one you’ll find in the ABA track. Everyone is available to help and pushes you to succeed. It is sometimes hard to find that at a large university.”
“It is unlike any other program or class at Binghamton.”


"Career pursued: Special Education"
“One of my favorite experiences was when we were given the opportunity to go to the NYSABA conference in New York. I learned so much while I was there, and it was wonderful to spend time with the others on the track.”
“After my first semester, it was clear what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.”


"Career pursued: Occupational Therapy/Clinical Psychology Psychology"
“I always knew I wanted to work in the autism field. What the ICD did for me was direct my passion and give me an appreciation for the science behind the treatment. The work you do is meaningful and I don’t think many other classes at Binghamton can offer that.”
“My experiences with the ABA track have been indispensable.”


"Career pursued: Applied Behavior Analysis"
“I never realized how much I enjoy working with children until I participated in the ABA track. My experiences at the ICD have changed my career path and I’m now focusing my career on ABA as a basis for student integration programs.”
“The track taught me how broad and far-reaching our impact can be.”


"Career pursued: Speech Pathology"
“I was excited but extremely overwhelmed in the beginning of my training at ICD because it’s different than anything I have ever done in my life. The best part for me was that I got to conduct speech goals, which were important for my career aims.”
“I came to Binghamton University to pursue the ABA program.”
