      ABA Board Statement on COVID-19

      Nevada Board of Applied Behavior Analysis  Statement on COVOID-19 March 26, 2020
       
      As you are aware, at the direction of Governor Sisolak, state functioning is limited and staff is required to telecommute in response to the emerging COVID-19, until further notice.
       
      As a result of the current and future status of the state, the Board of Applied Behavior Analysis will be closed to the public until further notice. Given this closure, scheduled and future board hearings and meetings have been placed on hold. 
       
      Despite the closure to the public, effort will be made to process applications as quickly as possible, given the current restrictions.  No jurisprudence examinations will be given to BCBAs and/or BCaBAs during this time.  In addition, there may be lulls in registering RBTs with the state due to testing sites closing nation-wide; because state law requires behavior technicians to be credentialed with the BACB as an RBT, we cannot register an RBT until the applicant possesses that credential. We ask for your patience during this time, as there will likely be delays. In order to expedite the process under these conditions, certificants and registrants will receive via email copies of licenses and registrations. Hard copies of certification and registration will resume when restrictions are removed at the state level.
       
      In relation to guidance related to your practice during these unprecedented times, we direct you to NABA, the BACB, and APBA, as well as encourage you to engage in the health recommendations that have been provided at both the state and national levels. We want to refer specifically to the email guidance related to COVID-19 sent by the BACB on March 19, 2020. 
       
      You may continue to email ABABoard@adsd.nv.gov, with questions regarding the practice of behavior analysis in the state, and will receive a response within two business days.  

       
      We hope everyone stays healthy and safe during these uncertain times.

        Authority

        The Aging and Disability Services Division, under authority of NRS 437, will operate the Board of Applied Behavior Analysis effective January 1, 2019. This board was the result of Senate Bill 286 that was introduced in the 79th Legislative Session.

          About the Board

          The Governor has appointed to the Board, four voting members who are behavior analysts licensed in this State and one voting member who is a representative of the general public who is interested in the practice of applied behavior analysis. The Board members will serve a term of 4 years and may not serve more than 2 consecutive terms.

          The Board may make and promulgate rules and regulations not inconsistent with the provisions NRS Chapter 437 governing its procedure, the examination and licensure, certification or registration of applicants, the granting, refusal, revocation or suspension of licenses, certificates or registrations and the practice of applied behavior analysis.

            Mission

            The Aging and Disability Services Division will be responsible for examination; licensure, certification and registration; investigations; collection of fees of behavior analysts, assistant behavioral analysts, registered behavior technicians, and state certified behavior interventionists.

              Registration of all Nationally Registered Behavior Technicians

              As of January 1, 2019, all Nationally Registered Behavior Technicians are required to be registered with the Aging and Disability Services Division. The Aging and Disability Services Division recognizes that it is not feasible or realistic for all RBT’s to be registered by January 1. Therefore, the Division is allowing a grace period of six months to complete this process. All RBT’s must be registered with the Division no later than June 30, 2019.
