The Capacity Building for Autism Interventions (CBAI) is an Alaskan Mental Health Trust/State of Alaska funded effort to increase the level of professional expertise as it relates to autism interventions in the State of Alaska.  As a result, a cadre of professionals and paraprofessionals will be available to deliver intensive autism intervention soon after a child is diagnosed and early in a child’s life when research shows intervention has the greatest impact. This project has three main goals:

  1. Facilitate the professional training of at least 6 graduate-level Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) trainees with an accredited and distance-based program of study,
  2. Implement an ASD Direct Service Provider Occupational Endorsement Certificate (OEC) program of study,
  3. Host annual Alaska Autism Summer Institutes.
