In the field of applied behavior analysis (ABA), individual professionals become certified and licensed, whereas organizations and institutions become accredited. For example, many ABA providers hold a certification credential from the Behavior Analyst Certification Board® (BACB®) and may also hold a license to practice ABA from a state licensure board. Likewise, some higher education training programs are accredited by the Association for Behavior Analysis International® (ABAI®) and service organizations offering ABA services to individuals with autism may choose to pursue accreditation with the Autism Commission on Quality (ACQ).
