LEGISLATIVE ACTION ALERT - NYSABA
Thank you again for your interest in helping to lift the scope restriction on licensed behavior analysts and certified behavior analyst assistants in New York so that individuals who are not diagnosed with autism can access ABA services!
We are in Albany lobbying TODAY!
We need your help now. Legislative sessions are held only through June, so we are in a time-sensitive window with respect to contacting individuals in the assembly and senate who may be supportive to our cause.
Itís critical that we have constituents from ALL OVER NEW YORK contacting their representatives.
As soon as possible, we need you to:
Use the following links to find your representatives:
You can use the script below tailoring it with your own information.
"Good morning Senator/Assemblyman or Assemblywoman ______. My name is ______ and I live in your district. I am calling today because individuals with disorders other than autism cannot get behavior analytic services because of the scope restriction placed on licensed behavior analysts. The current law only allows them to work with individuals diagnosed with autism. (ADD PERSONAL INFORMATION HERE, BUT KEEP THE FOCUS ON THE INACCESSIBILITY OF SERVICES FOR MANY INDIVIDUALS-DISCRIMINATION).
Senator Ritchie (Bill number S 4599) and Assemblywoman Peoples-Stokes (Bill number A7632) are sponsoring our bill to remove the scope restriction and we need your help. Will you support/co-sponsor bill number [S 4599 or A 7632] to lift the scope restriction so that my family member can get the services that they have a right to and very much need?"
***Do remain calm, be polite. Do not bully or demand.
***If the person you speak with agrees to support the bill, thank him/her, and follow up your call with a hand written thank you note.

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.
Please note: NYSABA is not affiliated with the NY Department of Professions or the NY Behavior Analysis Licensing Board
"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 (http://www.op.nysed.gov/prof/aba/), 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."
27th Annual Conference
Thank you for another successful Annual Conference!
