Our Board Certified Behavior Analyst supervisors provide effective and ethical behavioral intervention services to our clients. Our Seattle BCBA supervisors work to constantly remain updated in their research of autism and autism spectrum disorders to ensure the programs they develop are the most effective possible supported by the best scientific evidence available. Working with each client on a highly individualized level, our Seattle BCBA supervisors provide service both in-home and at our locations.

Clients of Magnolia Behavior Therapy may also work with our ABA Therapists to treat autism. While each ABA therapist possesses his or her own unique qualities and level of experience, each of our ABA Therapists have met minimal criteria. Each Seattle ABA therapist and our therapists in other areas of Washington have completed at least 40 hours of training in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) techniques in accordance with the BACB Guidelines for Responsible Conduct for Behavior Analysts, undergone a criminal background check, and completed a minimum of 48 semester hours of college courses in an accredited college or university. Most of our ABA therapists in Seattle and other areas hold a degree in the Behavioral Sciences, Psychology or a related field such as; Education, Human development, or Social Work/Behavioral Health
