Why Behavior Analysis?

In addition to learning skills that help you make a positive difference in others' lives, behavior analysis education also makes you highly employable. Applied behavior analysis (ABA) practitioners know that certification is the key to job growth and security. There is a growing need for well-trained board-certified professionals in behavior analysis to work or consult in schools, early intervention programs, day programs, residential settings and home-based programs. The career opportunities are expansive and growing.
