Although the ABA Online program is an ABAI-verified course sequence, we realize that behavior analysis students must also adhere to any licensing regulations, restrictions and applicable laws in the state or region in which they work. We want to make sure you are fully informed about any obstacles you might encounter on your journey to become certified in behavior analysis.
The State of New York has specific licensing requirements for behavior analysis, and we want you to know that Florida Tech ABA programs are not in the New York State Inventory of Registered Programs. This means it is very unlikely the ABA Online program will be accepted for New York licensing. Please consult the New York Office of the Professions State Board for Applied Behavior Analysis by visiting their website at http://www.op.nysed.gov/prof/aba/ or by contacting the board at email@example.com before finalizing your educational plans.
It is the responsibility of all students to stay informed about any requirements or regulations pertaining to the practice of behavior analysis in the state in which you work or plan to work.
Pennsylvania does not have a license for behavioral analysts, but its license for behavior specialists accepts BACB certification as a credential.
Connecticut does not currently require licensure for behavioral analysts. However, HB799 prohibits non-certified individuals from using that title. SB1089 was introduced to the legislature in 2014 to require behavioral analyst licensing and is modeled on the BACB Model Act.
Illinois has introduced legislation regarding the licensure of behavior analysts, but has not enacted the legislation to date.
The information provided above represents the best of our knowledge regarding states with licensure regulations for the practice of behavior analysis as of October 18, 2019.
