What is Progressive ABA?
Progressive ABA is a philosophical approach in which interventionists, supervisors, and applied researchers employ a structured yet flexible approach to behavior change. All efforts are contingent upon and responsive to the individual’s progress. To do this, the Certified Progressive Behavior Analyst – Autism Professional® uses the best available evidence in combination with advanced knowledge of basic principles and constant in-the-moment assessments to inform effective and caring intervention. This results in an approach that is grounded in science, socially-valid, and always progressing.

Therefore, all candidates must meet the established eligibility requirements and pass a (1) multiple choice question examination that includes video based questions, and (2) submitting a content presentation that will be evaluated by subject matter experts.
