      Applied Behavior Analysis References


Specifically, in order to practice as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, one must meet very extensive educational, professional experience and board exam requirements. Please refer to the Behavior Analyst Certification Board website for further info. 


Furthermore, the American Psychological Association has recognized Applied Behavior Analysis ( ABA ) as a valid science. Applied Behavior Analysis is considered to be a contributing division to psychology             and other disciplines.

 As stated by the APA:

"Division 25 - Behavior Analysis promotes basic research, both animal and human, in the experimental analysis of behavior; it encourages the application of the results of such research to human affairs, and cooperates with other disciplines whose interests overlap with those of the Division."


Also, the Board Certified Behavior Analyst credentialing programs through the Behavior Analyst Certification Board are accredited by the National Council for Certifying Agencies.  NCCA is the accreditation council within the National Organization for Competency Assurance .
