Since I have started this blog, I’ve gotten numerous email and phone inquiries regarding career advisement in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis.
Though I must point out, as I always say, each person is unique, so is also a personal career choice.
People have many career questions about ABA such as;
- how much work is involved in becoming a Behavior Analyst?
- should I become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst?
– what ABA graduate programs should I apply to?
– what job options would I have?
– what can I do with my current work background?
– could I set up my own business or should I work for an organization/agency?
– do I have to only work with the Autism population to become a BCBA?
– how can I get work experience with the required BCBA supervision?
I will provide some basics here:
With a BCBA certification you could do a lot of good work and help people. Our field is in need of very good, competent Behavior Analysts. Though there is an ongoing debate now with the Behavior Analyst Certification Board as to go the licensure route or continue the certification model. In my professional opinion, I still think the BCBA is the right thing to do if you utilize Applied Behavior Analysis in your working career.
Those interested in gaining more specific knowledge about ABA and becoming a Board Certified Behavior Analyst may email an inquiry at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘career’ to set up an appointment for a 15 minute or 30 minute career advisement session via phone. An informational email will then be sent regarding how to set up an appointment and fees.
Appointments can be set up quickly with credit card payment options through Paypal.
