Hey all!

I’m looking into becoming a BCBA but heard that in New York State you have to go through a much more intensive certification program. What does that mean for people that are already BCBAs? It’s triple the price to do the LBA and I don’t want to do it if it’s not 100% needed.

If you want to work in NY you need to be licensed and go through the full process- including paying more. I'm in the field and love it, but there are a lot of reasons that people don't so please find out if its the right field for you before investing the time and money into it.

If you want to work for an agency which bills health insurance ( which is where you will find almost all BCBA jobs) then you need to be a Licensed Behavior Analyst.
The LBA requires 1500 hours of supervised experience working with clients with an ASD ( autism) diagnoses, and can only begin once you complete your education.
When you are ready to begin your supervised hours, you may be able to work at an agency as a BCBA since some insurances allow BCBAs with permits ( but some don't so cases may be limited)
Things to keep in mind:
1- In general there is a high demand for BCBAs in the NY area.
2- Depending on where you live, check in to what opportunities are available once you become an LBA. Many cases may be after-school hours.

I just want to clarify that you with the right supervision and job, you can begin counting supervised hours while still in your coursework, as long as it's part of a practicuum and most hours can count as BCBA and LBA hours so you don't need to accrue 1500 twice
you just have to make sure all the requirements are met
most programs for LBA will include BCBA so you'll be able to practice out of NY state as well
