ABA Services
It is necessary to add back a license for Outpatient ABA.  In 2014, Licensed Behavior Analysts began practicing behavioral therapy under their DHP licenses and the Outpatient ABA license from DBHDS was retired.  However, there are many professionals who have clinics and centers, and for the safety of individuals with Medicaid who receive these services, it is important to license and regulate those clinics.  In addition, please include Licensed Behavior Analysts and Licensed Assistant Behavior Analysts where other professionals are included, and include behavior analysis with other degrees.  Thank you for your sincere consideration.
