This class was tough.
I currently teach students with Intellectual Disabilities in grades 9-12 in a low poverty environment. Learning about Applied Behavior Analysis helps me learn ways to teach my students to cope with their anger issues or things they have no control over. This class also teaches strategies that I can use in my classroom, athletic field, and even at home with my own children.
Learning new strategies that I can use anywhere, especially at home with my own children when I observe unwanted or inappropriate behaviors.

Advice for students:
It is a great course to take and is required for anyone going into the teaching field. I also had to take a similar course for my Master's degree. Take what you learn with a grain of salt and utilize it when needed. The more you practice the techniques and strategies the more you can create them to fit your or your classrooms needs.
