The Berkshire Association for Behavior Analysis and Therapy (BABAT) is an affiliated chapter of the Association for Behavior Analysis International and of the Association of Professional Behavior Analysts.
Formed in 1979, BABAT is perhaps best known for the annual conferences it has hosted at UMass (Amherst) every year for over 30 years. This conference is for professionals, teachers, students, and persons interested in the areas of behavior analysis, autism, developmental disabilities, ethics, behavioral medicine, staff development, and more.
BABAT is more than an organization that hosts an annual conference, however. We also serve as a resource for behavior analysts and those interested in behavior analysis in MA and the larger New England region.
