Hawai'i Association for Behavior Analysis

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


Stand with HABA and our Consumers
Oppose SB739 



Mahalo for supporting our consumers and
 submitting testimony in opposition of SB739!

It appears as though SB739 will NOT be heard again in the 2017 legislative session. It may carry over and be heard in the 2018 legislative session. 

What does this mean? Existing state law (ACT 199) law remains as is. Act 199 requires licensure for the practice of behavior analysis. The law also requires the RBT credential for direct support workers providing ABA (DOE and DOH-DDD must have RBTs starting in 2019).  Please visit our pages on Licensure  and ABA in DOE for more information. 

HABA will continue to focus on consumer protection and malama our keiki! We will keep our members posted.
