Organizations Meet to Discuss Enhancing Government Recognition for the Profession of Behavior Analysis and ABA Service

October 1, 2013

On October 1, 2013, the New Jersey Association for Behavior Analysis (NJABA), Autism New Jersey, and leaders in the field discussed opportunities to enhance government recognition for the profession and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services. Joining via video conference from California, Dr. Gina Green, Executive Director of the Association of Professional Behavior Analysts (APBA), shared developments from other states and outlined how NJABA and Autism New Jersey could work together to promote the BACB credentials here in New Jersey.

Representatives from the five New Jersey universities that offer BACB-approved course work sequences and degrees in behavior analysis, school programs for children with autism, and private service providers all agreed that state recognition for the BACB credentials would facilitate families’ access to high-quality behavior analytic services.

As NJABA and Autism New Jersey continue to collaborate, we welcome your input to strengthen our advocacy for the profession in Trenton and throughout New Jersey.
