Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA)

BCBAs are responsible for the development, coordination, and implementation of behavioral assessments and programming. BCBAs provide training to Behavior Technicians on evidence-based behavioral interventions and training to parents on general behavior management.

“I began working at the CFA as a Behavior Technician shortly after earning my Master of Social Work, eager to gain experience with a new population before eventually returning to my field. It only took a few weeks at the CFA to realize I had no intention of returning to social work. I love my job and amazed by the social, communicative, and behavioral improvements I see in the children I work with. I’ve witnessed firsthand how ABA can change lives, and I can’t imagine doing anything else as my career.” -Current Behavior Technician

“When I was hired at the CFA, I had never heard of ABA and had zero experience with people diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum. My undergraduate degree was in a completely different area of study and I didn’t plan on working at the CFA for long. Within months, though, I had fallen in love with the science of ABA. One year later, I began graduate school and was promoted to the CFA Leadership team as an Assistant Behavior Analyst. A year after that, I received my master’s degree in ABA and became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. I will forever be grateful to the CFA for introducing me to the field that has become my passion.” -Current BCBA
