The Southern California Consortium for Behavior Analysis (SCCBA) is dedicated to the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and to working collaboratively to achieve professional goals that are unattainable individually.

SCCBA promotes the highest standards of behavior analysis, community awareness, training, research and business practices, and monitors legislation that impacts the practice of applied behavior analysis.

Members of SCCBA are committed to the utilization of quality behavior analysis programs that have been empirically validated for the betterment of those who receive services, while maintaining the highest standards of ethical conduct.



SCCBA is an organization of over 38 service providers who provide applied behavior analysis-based services to thousands of individuals with autism or other developmental disabilities, and behavior challenges through regional centers, insurance, school districts, and private funding sources across California. Our membership also includes professors and students from universities, as well as funding source representatives.

SCCBA began in 2008, at an initial meeting, sponsored by the College of Social and Behavioral Science at CSUN, to accelerate the emergence of a community network of local behavior analysts, clinical directors, and leaders in behavior therapy organizations and education who shared common professional values and concerns. Through the consortium, behavior analysts from across California have been able to come together to address local and statewide issues that impact their ability to practice, and promote the highest professional, scientific, and ethical standards.
