QABA in Africa

The QABA Credentialing Board is committed to providing certifications for Applied Behavior Analysis in Africa. The QABA has formed the International Standards Committee which includes professionals across the globe. The committee has strong representation from Africa to ensure practitioners have access to accredited certifications in ABA. The goal is for individuals with autism and other disabilities across Africa to receive treatment from a certified practitioner. To ensure every child across Africa receives standardized care from practitioners, certification that is accredited plays a fundamental role on this journey.
