BCBA Candidate Supervision
Who: BCBA candidates
Our Expertise: We offer BCBA candidate supervision to employees of ABAS looking to obtain the required hours of supervision as part of the BACB requirements. Supervision that is provided is ethical, supportive, systematic and data driven. Supervision includes an initial assessment of familiarity, understanding and the ability to apply concepts and principles from the BACB task list. Development of supervision is based on each student’s assessment and areas of interest. ABAS has developed a curriculum that we believe provides BCBA candidates with valuable experiences and opportunities. Quarterly assessments are completed on the candidate and monthly progress of hours is monitored to make sure the candidate is making progress and gaining the experience to become a well-rounded future BCBA.
Who: University students
Our Expertise: We are excited to partner with and offer our new space as a place for university students to grow and learn. We work with each university to meet competency requirements while facilitating growth and understanding of ABA principles and how to apply them to increase skill acquisition and reduce problem behaviors. An intern with ABAS will be placed for an entire semester and must apply.
