Professional Organizations

Simplified Behavioral Health provides applied behavior analysis (ABA) to change the lives of children with autism. Our team also contributes to the growth and development of the field of ABA through research and collaboration, as well as membership and affiliation with various industry organizations.

We are proud to be a member of the following organizations:

behavioral health center of excellence

BHCOE Accreditation is a trusted source that recognizes behavioral health organizations committed to continuous quality improvement. BHCOE offers a third-party measurement system that differentiates and provides independent feedback on clinical quality indicators. The BHCOE criterion features standards that subject-matter experts developed to measure effective applied behavior analysis services. The Preliminary Accreditation audit process consists of an interview, document review and systems analysis. The Preliminary Accreditation can also be used by providers looking to prepare for full accreditation within the next year as a way to prepare for the larger survey.

behavior analyst certification board

The Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB), is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation established in 1998 to meet professional credentialing needs identified by behavior analysts, governments, and consumers of behavior analysis services. The mission of the BACB is to protect consumers of behavior analysis services worldwide by systematically establishing, promoting, and disseminating professional standards.


The State of Alabama requires a license to practice applied behavior analysis (ABA). Board Certified Behavior Analysts and Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts providing services in Alabama should complete the application process through the ALBALB. A license is not required for Registered Behavior Technicians.

association of Professional Behavior Analysts

APBA works to build cooperative relationships with other organizations in the field of behavior analysis as well as those in related fields. One of APBA’s major initiatives involves developing close and supportive relationships with national, regional, state, and provincial organizations serving professionals in applied behavior analysis. Another is collaborating with organizations representing consumers of applied behavior analysis services. Of course, ABAI is the field’s oldest organization, and APBA is committed to collaborating with ABAI in ways that serve the overlapping interests of the two organizations and their members.

Women in Behavior Analysis

Women in Behavior Analysis (WIBA) has the mission to empower, celebrate and mentor women behavior analysts and highlight their contributions to the field. The conference will allow all genders to engage in meaningful discourse on gender equality for the promotion of behavior analysis and professional growth of future generations.

Autism Support of Alabama

The ASA’s mission is to improve services for persons with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families through education and advocacy.
