Trumpet Behavioral Health’s professionals with specialized autism training include Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts (BCaBAs). These professionals follow guidelines set forth by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB), including adhering to strict educational requirements and fulfilling a mandated amount of supervised experience in the field. Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) also obtain continuing education credits to maintain their credentials.

We assign each client a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) or Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBAs) to complete an assessment and develop a comprehensive autism treatment program.

In addition, each Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) must pass the Board Certification exam.
