ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) _ New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signed a law establishing a new state license for those treating clients with autism spectrum disorder using applied behavior analysis.

According to the governor's office, that should help families find quality providers who have met academic and training requirements and ensure state regulation and oversight.

Applied behavioral analysis is described as intensive, often one-on-one treatment method.

The license will require at least a master's degree for analysts and establishes a new state certification for analyst assistants.
