Since 2009, the applied behavior analysis profession has rapidly become regulated. The following US map indicates the states that have passed legislation to license or otherwise regulate behavior analysts and the year the licensure law was enacted.
The following table lists the states that currently require licensure, the year the licensure law was enacted, and the state’s licensure board and professional association. Behavior analysts working in one of these states should review the relevant websites and either apply for licensure or determine whether they are in a class exempt from licensure. Some states with newly enacted laws may not have implemented an application system. Links to licensure laws are provided in these cases.
