Program Summary

What Information We'll Cover

When faced with the challenge to create an 8-hour supervision program for behavior analysts, based on the Supervision Curriculum Outline (2.0) from the Behavior Analyst Certification Board®, it became quite clear that 8 hours alone was not sufficient to provide supervisors with the skills necessary to provide a quality experience for supervisees and trainees. This program provides over 14 hours of practical strategies and empirically-validated techniques for providing high quality supervision in ABA, and includes tools to integrate in order to enhance the experience for your upcoming analysts.
