ABA Knowledge Builder enables therapy providers and universities to prepare individuals for behavior analyst certification and to support career development amidst growing demand for BCBAs.


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (November 30, 2022) – CentralReach, the leading provider of Autism and IDD Care software, today announced the launch of ABA Knowledge Builder, a comprehensive solution for building skill competency and preparing aspiring behavior analysts for the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) exam.


The launch of the ABA Knowledge Builder solution comes at a critical time for the behavioral health industry. As prevalence rates of ASD continue to rise, there has been an unparalleled demand for BCBAs over the past several years; the Behavior Analyst Certification Board citing a nationwide increased demand of 38 percent, from 2020 to 2021 alone. Aligning with CentralReach’s mission and commitment to unlock potential for individuals with autism and those who serve them, ABA Knowledge Builder equips therapy providers, universities, and other organizations with individualized BCBA test prep in their staff and students’ learning sequence to further their professional development goals. The solution also offers career growth opportunities for those already within this field, with resources such as unlimited mock exams, research-based “Say All Fast, a Minute Every Day, Shuffled” (SAFMEDS) instructional methodologies, focused curriculum, and individualized performance reports.


“As more individuals are diagnosed with autism each year, the demand for trained professionals in the ABA therapy space continues to grow,” said Chris Sullens, CEO of CentralReach. “When developing ABA Knowledge Builder, we had one goal in mind: build a BCBA test prep solution that would help both universities and therapy providers increase the number and quality of behavior analysts in the field. I’m thrilled to see the solution in action at some of the largest University programs, such as National University, and with some of the leading ABA providers who are implementing their own career pathing programs. With this technology in the hands of those who are developing the next generation of behavior analysts, we are one step closer to tackling the capacity constraints that impact this industry and increasing access to care for autism and IDD care around the US.”


ABA Knowledge Builder is available for purchase with CentralReach’s training, competency, and skill development platform, CR Institute. Customers of CR Institute have access to:

  • A learning management system that provides a single place to create, deliver, manage and track staff training and skill development

  • A course library of over 175 continuing education units and the 40-hour RBT course

  • CentralReach software courses to provide ongoing important onboarding, training and skill development for CentralReach products

  • And now, ABA Knowledge Builder - a test prep solution designed for both universities and therapy providers to help prepare individuals for the BCBA exam

“As ABA educators, we strive to provide our students with the best and leading resources to support them throughout their journey to becoming certified BCBAs,” said Dr. Sharlyn Crump, Associate Professor and MSABA Academic Program Director at National University located in San Diego, California. “With the help of CentralReach’s technology, we are able to track our students’ progress from skill development all the way through mastery and gain invaluable insight into their performance to identify how best to support them throughout their education.”
