Albany, NY – Governor Cuomo signed into law on Friday, a bill to establish a new state license for providers of applied behavior analysis (ABA) services to individuals with autism spectrum disorder. Applied behavioral analysis is described as intensive, often one-on-one treatment method and often lacks standardization of training around the country.

The new law builds on the insurance reform legislation passed in 2011 and requires a new state license for behavior analysts with a minimum of a master’s degree as well as a new state certification for behavior analyst assistants.

Judith Ursitti, Autism Speaks’ director of state government affairs, says

“Governor Cuomo’s signature on this legislation ensures that New York families can access meaningful, quality care for their loved ones with autism.”
