We Set the Standard for Better and More Accessible Training and Improved Professional Certifications in the Field of ABA

In 2021, we have established:

An accredited certification for evaluating if a professional meets the highest standards in demonstrating proficiency in the content of a progressive approach to ABA as it relates to individuals diagnosed with ASD.
This certification program is designed for professionals with a minimum of 10,000 hours (approximately 5 years full-time) experience in ABA with concentration in autism.
