About BDS

About BDS:

Since 1998 we’ve helped thousands of behavior analysts become Board-certified, primarily through our CBA Learning Module Series, the premier exam prep and curriculum supplement for behavior analysts in training. With an average pass rate over 96%, we’ve helped our clients achieve success by applying the scientific principles and methods of applied behavior analysis to the development of instructional content and software. More specifically, we use goals and specific measurable objectives to teach the discriminations necessary to ensure that those objectives are learned. We then provide plenty of practice to ensure fluency and maintenance.

Although our primary customer-base has been behavior analysts, we also provide customized training to other human service organizations and private companies. With our web-based learning platform, we are able to provide training to virtually anyone connected to the internet with a PC, Mac, iPad, and most mobile devices. If you have training needs, please get in touch. We may be able to help.

About Behavior Analysis:

Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is a scientific approach to solving problems of social importance (Baer, Wolf, Risley, 1968) including educational issues, problem behaviors, and much more. It is based on the pioneering work of Drs. J. B. Watson, B. F. Skinner, and many others dating back to the early 1900s. The unofficial birth of applied behavior analysis is 1968, with the introduction of the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis. With the recent rise of children with autism and the establishment of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board in the late 1990s, the field has grown in size and influence. At BDS, our mission is to further the development of empirically validated methods of instruction and deliver that technology in a cost-effective manner. The primary vehicle for achieving this is ABA.
