The Never-Ending Need for Licensed and Certified Behavioral Analysts in Autism

Corey Robertson, Lead Co-Instructor of Continuing Education, Florida Institute of Technology speaks about the advent of certification and licensing for behavioral analysis in autism. Thankfully, certification and licensing in 1999 brought about a stop to the institutional mistreatment of people with disabilities by practitioners claiming behavioral modification.

The field of autism has gained tremendously by increased professional training but demand is constantly outweighing supply. Programs such as the Florida Association of Behavioral Analysis (FABA), of which Corey Robertson is President, are making inroads to supplying a pool of qualified autism analysts.
