A limited permit authorizes practice of applied behavior analysis under the supervision of an appropriately licensed professional, who is authorized to practice applied behavior analysis. For licensed behavior analyst applicants, their supervisor must be a licensed behavior analyst or a person who is licensed or otherwise authorized to diagnose, prescribe or order applied behavior analysis services for the purpose of providing behavioral health treatment for persons with autism and autism spectrum disorders and related disorders. You must meet all requirements for licensure as a licensed behavior analyst except for the licensing examination and/or professional experience requirements.
You may apply for a limited permit by submitting the Application for Limited Permit (Form 5) and limited permit fee of $70 at the same time or any time after you submit your Application for Licensure/Certification (Form 1) with the required fee. If you change supervisors or have additional supervisors after a permit is issued, you must obtain a re-issued permit. Complete a new Form 5 for each prospective supervisor, and return it to the Office of the Professions. A new fee is not required for a permit issued as a result of a change in supervisor. Limited permits expire one year from the date of issue and may be renewed for one additional year for good cause as determined by the Department.
NOTE: Your application for licensure, the initial licensure fee, and all other required documentation, including evidence of completing department-approved coursework or training in the identification and reporting of child abuse, must be received and approved before a limited permit can be issued.
