Welcome to the Hawai'i Association for Behavior Analysis 

Our Mission Statement: 

To educate, advocate for, and support both providers and consumers of Applied Behavior Analysis.  

The Hawai’i Association for Behavior Analysis (HABA) is a professional organization dedicated to the practice, research, and dissemination of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). HABA’s mission is to expand behavioral knowledge, advocate for community needs, support service providers and parents, educate community leaders, and promote the advancement of behavior analysis locally. HABA works diligently on legislative and policy issues that impact our community (e.g., autism insurance, behavior analyst licensure, sustainability initiatives) and aims to educate local policymakers about our science. HABA offers several in person- and online- workshops for educators, parents, students, and practitioners. In addition, every Fall, HABA hosts an annual convention located on Oahu.
