The acronym BCBA stands for Board Certified Behavior Analyst and BCBA-D is the Doctoral level designation of the certification.
A BCBA is someone who has completed the education and experience requirements of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board. Having the BCBA credential means you are backed by the certification board as a competent practitioner in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis and agree to uphold the ethical standards of practice as outlined by the BACB.
The role of a BCBA varies from case to case, but their function is to conduct descriptive and systematic behavioral assessments, conduct functional analysis of behavior, analyze data, and provide behavior analytic interpretations of the data and results. The BCBA designs and supervises behavior analytic interventions for their clients.
