I get lots of questions and emails from people curious about the field of ABA, and how to become an ABA provider.
Like, a lot of questions.
A lot, LOT, of questions.
After probably question #999,999, it finally dawned on me that maybe a handy dandy resource would be helpful for people. So with this post I present that handout to you!
Oh stop, no applause is necessary.
Okay, if you insist.
Below you will find a massive list of links that will lead you to specific posts that should answer your burning questions about entering the field of ABA. At the very bottom of this post, you can download a FREE (we like that word around here) handout that goes into great detail about how to enter this field and kick off a rewarding career.
I tried to be as thorough as possible, but of course, I can't possibly answer questions about every possible scenario. So if you live in Alaska and want to know how to open the first Verbal- Behavior -intervention -clinic- for -left -handed -girls- with- Autism- who- wear -glasses ... yeah I can't help you.
Everyone else, please peruse the information below. I hope its helpful!
