About the board

The Behavior Analysis Regulatory Board oversees the licensing of behavior analysts and assistant behavior analysts and the registration of behavior analysis interventionists. Applied behavior analysis is a therapeutic modality that is often used to treat people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

The Behavior Analysis Regulatory Board consists of nine members appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Oregon Senate:

  • Four behavior analysts or assistant behavior analysts licensed with the Board
  • One licensed psychiatrist with experience or training in treating ASD
  • One licensed psychologist with experience or training in treating ASD
  • One member who is a licensed developmental pediatrician with experience or training in treating ASD
  • One member of the public who does not have a financial interest in the provision of applied behavior analysis and does not have a ward or family member who has been diagnosed with ASD
  • One parent, guardian or family member of an individual who has been diagnosed with ASD and has received some form of applied behavior analysis therapy.

The term of office of each member is four years, but a member serves at the pleasure of the governor. Before the expiration of the term of a member, the governor shall appoint a successor whose term begins on the next Nov. 1. A member is eligible for reappointment. If there is a vacancy for any cause, the governor shall make an appointment to become immediately effective for the unexpired term.
