Hong Kong Association for Behavior Analysis has been affected by the pandemic over the last few years. Personnel changes and the disruption to the region have stalled our efforts to continue as an ABAI Chapter. However, recently, a core group of practitioners, some existing HKABA Board members, and some new behavior analysts have held a meeting to revive the chapter and move forward.

There has been an increase in certified behavior analysts in the region as well as the development of a few new organizations that provide services to children and families with special education needs.  HKABA members continue to contribute to the field through attendance at conferences, in person and online as well as publishing research in our field. 

Plans for the group include an upcoming social event to reconnect and to hold elections to establish a new Board with a fresh agenda.  Many chapters have confronted these issues as we are confident that we have not been alone in the struggle to continue to fulfill our mission and vision to continue to develop behavior analysis in the region.  We are looking ahead and hope to have a more established and vibrant group, moving forward.
