HSTA (Hawaii State Teachers Association) has requested a bill to allow for funding for Licensed Behavior Analysts (LBAs) and Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) in the Department of Education (DOE). HABA is in SUPPORT of this bill! We stand #forourkeiki and for our teachers too! Mahalo nui to Senator Donovan Dela Cruz for sponsoring this very important piece of legislation.

To be discussed during Conference Week

At the start of the 2018 Legislative Session, the HIDOE originally introduced a bill seeking to limit ABA services to students in our schools (HB2271). Luckily, our legislators revised the bill. The original language submitted by the HIDOE has been removed from the bill, however additional concerning language was added in.
