Board Certified Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Experts

Simplified Behavioral Health’s autism behavioral therapists are certified as Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts (BCaBAs), and Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs). These professionals follow guidelines set forth by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) including adhering to strict educational requirements and fulfilling a mandated amount of experience in the field. Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) also obtain continuing education credits to maintain their credentials. Certified individuals have met a standard of expertise and possess in-depth knowledge on how to apply the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) in autism intervention programs.

We assign each client a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) to complete an assessment and develop a comprehensive autism treatment program, while a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) or Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) completed the direct 1:1 therapy.
