Why does the UK-SBA need a Voluntary Register?

When you are looking for a Behaviour Analyst, or want to check the experience or credentials of a Behaviour Analyst you have been allocated by your hospital, school or organisation, it can be difficult to know where to start. You want to have confidence in the practitioner who will be working with you, to know something about their training and experience or the length of time they have worked in the field. You will want reassurance that they have proper DBS credentials and are appropriately insured. To these ends, the UK-SBA has set up a Voluntary Register.

The UK-SBA Voluntary Register is a way of helping members of the public find Behaviour Analysts and check the qualifications, certification and experience of any individual they are considering employing or working with.

By registering on the UK-SBA's Voluntary Register members of the society have shown a commitment to working ethically and professionally and to adhering to UK statutory standards such as having a DBS check and appropriate insurances.
