A set of frequently asked questions and answers from the department of professions has just been posted. These may be helpful for persons who have questions about scope, eligibility to practice, eligibility to become licensed, and training. We urge everyone to read these carefully and continue to ask questions of the department as they arise.

"NYSABA's legislative committee would like to thank everyone who attended the grassroots advocacy workshop, the panel discussion, and the talk on supervision and obtaining experience toward licensure in NY.  We are pleased that our members continue to support or efforts and work hard to stay informed of the rules and regulations in New York.  Following the panel discussion as well as the talk on BACB supervision updates and NYSED's experience requirements, a question was asked regarding the requirement of the prescription for ABA.  On NYSED's website (, it is stated that ABA services are provided pursuant to a diagnosis and a prescription or an order from a person who is licensed or otherwise authorized to provide such diagnosis and order or prescription. Based on this, it appears as though a report, from a NYS licensed psychologist, with a diagnosis of autism and an order for ABA services would be sufficient."
