Irish Society for Behaviour Analysis

People receiving ABA

Nothing about us without us. 

The governance of the Irish Society for Behaviour Analysis is supported and informed by an Experts by Experience (EE) Panel. Experts by Experience will have direct experience of receiving ABA from an appropriately qualified professional (Board Certified Behaviour Analyst, Charter Behavioural Psychologist or other with level nine or above training in ABA). An expert by experience is someone who has personal experience using health, mental health or social care services or who is a close relative supporting someone who uses those services. However, we recognise that many people have not had access to quality ABA services due to the unregulated nature of behaviour analytic services in Ireland. These people may have services which have purported to be ABA but were not delivered by an appropriately qualified individual; the views of these people are also valuable.  

Initially, the board of directors of the ISBA will support the development of the Experts by Experience Panel; however, as the panel develops, it will become a self-regulating division of the organisation. The board of the ISBA will therefore consider volunteers to the EE panel who have not had direct experience but have demonstrable interests in the ethical practice of behavioural science. The Experts by Experience Panel will elect their representatives, and these elected representatives will then commit to attending the Administrative Committee meetings of the ISBA.
