2023 Certification and Licensing Requirements for ABA Therapists

As an ABA therapist, it’s important to understand the certification and licensing requirements in your state in order to practice legally and ethically. These requirements can vary from state to state, so it’s important to stay up-to-date on the specific requirements in your area.

In 2023, here are a few key certification and licensing requirements for ABA therapists to be aware of:

  1. Certification: Many states require ABA therapists to be certified by a professional organization, such as the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB). To be eligible for certification, you must typically have a graduate degree in a related field and complete a certain number of supervised hours of experience.
  2. Licensing: Some states also require ABA therapists to be licensed in order to practice legally. To be eligible for a license, you may need to meet certain education and experience requirements, as well as pass an exam.
  3. Continuing education: Most states require ABA therapists to complete a certain number of continuing education (CE) hours in order to maintain their certification or license. These hours can be obtained through a variety of methods, such as attending conferences, workshops, or online courses.

By staying up-to-date on certification and licensing requirements, ABA therapists can ensure that they are practicing legally and ethically, and that they are providing the best possible care for their clients.
