        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.


            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.
