BCBA - Board Certified Behavioral Analyst
IEA has two full-time Board Certified Behavioral Analyst (BCBA) on-site to support all of our students, as well as two Behavioral Interventionists. Our BCBA can be found working with students directly in their classrooms, identifying variables that may be maintaining interfering behaviors, and teaching appropriate replacement behaviors.

BCBA's carry at least a Master's Degree, have accomplished at least 225 hours of additional coursework, and must meet all other legal and professional guidelines in accordance with the BACB's national standards.
