    With the BICC’s new BCAT credential, behavioral therapists can certify that they have received the training and oversight required to provide the highest quality services to their clients.

    What is a Board Certified Autism Technician?

    A BCAT is a paraprofessional that practices under the supervision of a nationally licensed/certified ABA professional. The BCAT's primary responsibility is the direct implementation of treatment plans developed by the supervisor.

    Why is the credential important to agencies and therapists?

    Board Certified Autism Technicians, and their agencies, can be confident they are providing the most effective treatment to their clients with autism. To prospective clients, the BCAT credential signifies a higher standard of service. BCATS are trained in behavior analysis; but more specifically autism.
