BABA’s mission is to promote, educate, empower, and disseminate Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) within the black community.

Thereby adding strength to black organizations, companies, and communities.
What Our Members Say
“Prior to joining this group, I did not have the opportunity to encounter a black BCBA in my journey as an RBT. After becoming certified, I suffered from impostor syndrome that led to almost crippling anxiety, feelings of self-worthlessness and the overwhelming urge to give up on a discipline that I love. BABA gave me my strength back! It exposed me to a realm of providers that resemble me and my cultural views. I owe my BABA family everything! Without them, I wouldn’t have continued along this path to help change the lives of the families I serve. Thank you BABA!”
