    So I have applied, been accepted and just enrolled in courses that start in May 2011 at Ball State University for their Masters in Applied Behavior Analysis program. My intention with this degree is to become a consultant for various organizations but I am trying to decide if my main focus should be on working with schools or Traumatic Brain Injury.

    My question is if you planned to work with schools would it be better to have a degree in special education but still able to seek BCBA (Board Certification) certification in behavior analysis? I can work with Autism children/adults and TBI clients with either but I am unsure about the school setting. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Can you guys recommend online Special Education masters programs (excluding primarily known only for internet schools like Capella and Walden)

    Note: For reciprocity and educational certification requirements, check with your State’s education department regarding programmatic accreditation that may be also required (e.g., NCATE or TEAC); I’ve tried to only list those specialized accredited programs. Also as a program entry requirement, some programs will require that the applicant holds a standard classroom teaching certificate.
