Creation of a Commission for Accreditation of Programs and Services Using Applied Behavior Analysis for Treatment Purposes
Weinberg, Michael
International Journal of Behavioral Consultation and Therapy, v1 n4 p338-340 2005
The field of Applied Behavior Analysis has evolved to the point of providing services in many organizations and educational settings in the United States. ABA is considered in a growing number of schools, provider organizations, and by states, as the most effective intervention approach for children with autism. Advances in the research have led to numerous applications of behavior analysis methodologies, and the creation of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board in 2000. Yet, despite certification setting a standard for competence in the practice of Applied Behavior Analysis, there are no established standards in the U.S. for organizations or agencies that provide ABA as a primary treatment approach. This paper presents a brief statement of the need and purpose of such standards for accreditation in the implementation of ABA services.
