Purpose & Mission
MABA is a non-profit organization founded in September of 2005 and officially approved for Affiliate status from the larger Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) in May of 2006. MABA became an Affiliate of the Association of Professional Behavior Analysts (APBA) in August of 2015. MABA is composed of a large body of committed members; and the organization's direction and goals are determined by an elected executive committee and a number of other internal committees. MABA membership is entirely voluntary.
Our mission is to develop and disseminate knowledge about behaviour analysis as a science. MABA's interests lie in basic science focusing on principles governing human and nonhuman behaviour (i.e., the experimental analysis of behavior) as well as applied science focusing on application of those principles for improvement of socially important problems (i.e., applied behaviour analysis), and disseminating this information to stimulate interest in and correct misunderstandings of behaviour analysis.

4th Annual World Autism Awareness Walk and Rally
March 1, 2016
Free Parent Seminar this Saturday!
There are a multitude of therapies available to children, adolescents, and adults with autism that are promoted as effective and evidence-based. This presentation will define evidence-based treatments for autism, show you how you can determine if treatments are evidence-based or not, and indicate how you can determine if the treatment you have chosen is working. This presentation will also define applied behaviour analysis (ABA), review the research on ABA and it’s uses, in particular for autism treatment, discuss the importance in getting access to ABA as early as possible, and also discuss the importance of getting access to ABA regardless of age. Questions will be welcome throughout the presentation as well as afterwards.
