    What is a BCBA?

    “BCBA” is a nationally recognized certification that stands for Board Certified Behavior Analyst. 

    Behavior Analysis is the science of behavior and based on the philosophy of behaviorism.  The belief is that all behavior (appropriate and inappropriate) is a product of the events that follow it (i.e., consequences). Behavior analysts (i.e., BCBAs) use evidence-based research, treatment, and interventions to analyze and change socially significant behavior to improve quality of life.   (BACB website)

    BCBAs and Monroe Twp. Schools:

    Monroe Twp. School District currently employs four full-time BCBAs that provide district-wide support to students receiving special education from preschool through ages 18-21. 

    BCBAs can provide strategies that assist students in the areas of skill acquisition (i.e., learning new skills) as well as behavior reduction (i.e., behavior plans).  This is accomplished through staff training and classroom support.   Feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding our support model.
