What Is A BCBA?

A BCBA is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst certified by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board.

How do you get a BCBA anyway?

The BCBA is an exam. Simply passing a test doesn’t qualify someone as an expert on autism, especially when you consider the next question.

Does simply having a BCBA qualify someone as an expert on autism?

Nope. A person can be a BCBA without ever treating or even meeting someone with ASD. Behavior analysis is just an approach to human behavior and not defined by any single diagnostic condition like autism.

Are all BCBAs equal?


Some BCBAs have many years of expertise and experience in the field of ASD treatment but some other BCBAs do not.
