CentralReach Helps Keep Autism Therapy Clinicians Certified to Provide Care in Wake of COVID-19
CentralReach Opens Entire Digital Continuing Education Library for Free Access to the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Community During the Coronavirus Pandemic
Pompano Beach, Florida – April 9th, 2020 – CentralReach, the leading provider of electronic medical record (EMR), practice management and clinical solutions for Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) clinicians who care for people with autism and related disorders recently announced free access to its entire digital continuing education library to help Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) stay certified during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) healthcare pandemic.
Given the mandatory cancellations of industry conferences that provide continuing education as well as an increase in the number of BCBAs furloughed or laid off, many of these clinicians are faced with the prospect of being unable to access or afford continuing education units (CEUs) which are necessary for recertification. With only an estimated 38,000 BCBAs to provide care for millions of people with ASD, the industry already faced a capacity constraint and any additional loss of BCBAs in market due to COVID-19 would be devastating to those seeking care.
With free access to CentralReach’s digital continuing education library, which includes over 100+ CEUs, BCBAs will be able to meet the 32 minimum CEU requirement by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board to maintain certification.
“The Coronavirus pandemic has created many unprecedented challenges for the ABA healthcare providers that CentralReach serves and as the industry leader we are committed to helping them navigate and weather this storm,” commented CentralReach CEO, Chris Sullens. “These clinicians have enough on their plates as it is and worrying about if they’re going to lose their certification shouldn’t be one of them. I am certain the ABA industry will come out on the other side of this stronger and I’m glad that we could do our part to support them through this.”
Since the campaign started last month, half of the estimated 38,000 BCBAs have registered for the free CEUs - a number that is growing daily. CentralReach has also created a business and care continuity resources page so ABA clinicians and educators can access resources and information designed to help them navigate through the Coronavirus pandemic.
