Hiring a Behavior Analyst To Supervise an In-Home Program
We urge parents to read the consumer guidelines prior to hiring anyone.
Please check the Registry for Certificants in Behavior Analysis at www.bacb.com to verify that a potential consultant is a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA) or board certified associate behavior analyst (BCaBA). This site allows you to search by name or location to find a certified behavior analyst in your area.
Some local private ABA clinics and schools (listed under site-based providers) might provide in-home consulting services as well. Contact them individually to check availability of services. In addition, providers from out-of-town and out-of-state often will provide periodic consulting services to supervise an in-home program, although this is not always optimal if it reduces the intensity and frequency of supervision for your child’s program.

TYAP also has a Day Treatment Center (Texas Young Autism Day Treatment Center), with the same contact information as above.
There is a parent volunteer who maintains a list of individuals who are interested in serving as therapist/trainers for families who are conducting in-home ABA programs for their children with autism. The individuals on the list have various amounts of training. FEAT-Houston does not screen or endorse any individual who has requested inclusion on this list and we urge families to ask for references and check them. To request a copy of this list or to request inclusion on the list as someone willing to work as a therapist/trainer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Your request will be forwarded to the volunteer keeping the list.
