In order to practice psychology in North Carolina, including behavior analysis, one must be licensed by the NC Psychology Board, unless one is exempt from licensure pursuant to NC Gen. Stat. Sec. 90-270.4.”
Thus, until/unless individuals have a NC license to practice behavior analysis, they may be subject to investigation by the NC Psychology Board.
