U.S. LICENSURE OF BEHAVIOR ANALYSTS

With licensure in over 30 states, the behavior analysis profession is rapidly becoming regulated. The U.S. map below indicates (in blue) the states that have passed legislation to regulate behavior analysts. With your cursor, hover over a state to reveal the year its regulatory law was enacted.

The table below contains links to state regulatory board websites. Behavior analysts working in one of these states should review the relevant website immediately and either (a) apply for licensure or (b) determine whether they are in a class exempted from licensure.


Note: Some authorities only recently passed laws requiring behavior analysts to be licensed and have not yet implemented an application system. In these cases, links are provided to the regulatory law. The BACB does not warrant or guarantee the accuracy of the information conveyed in the links above.
