Individuals who achieve this certification can work at the highest level to create programming for Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy. While the path to becoming a BCBA is not easy, per se, it is straightforward and achievable for most people who put their minds to it.

A Board Certified Behavior Analyst, or BCBA, is a healthcare professional who is an expert in the behavior of children and adults (often as it applies to autism and ABA therapy). Their job is typically to create plans to improve and change behavioral impediments. It’s common for them to work with patients with developmental disabilities, specifically autism spectrum disorder.
