New 8-hour Supervision Course for Behavior Analysts
Based on the BACB Curriculum Outline 2.0

Melbourne, FL: ABA Technologies, Inc., in partnership with Florida Tech, announces the launch of an 8-hour training program to prepare behavior analysts to become supervisors. 

The 21st Century Supervision Course Series is based on the BACB’s Supervisor Training Curriculum Outline 2.0, released in December 2018. Per the BACB, this new curriculum is “revised, enhanced, and reorganized to emphasize content relevant to the ongoing supervision of RBTs and BCaBAs, and the supervision of trainees.” All incoming supervisors are required to complete an updated training course beginning November 2019.  

Seven seasoned behavior analysts teach this course. Topics include clinical behavior analysis, organizational behavior management, and instructional design. All are essential components for behavior analysts to grow as supervisors. 

The seven-part series includes the following:

  1. The Purpose of SupervisionDr. Jose Martinez-Diaz and Dr. Allison King share how ethical supervision affects the broader field of behavior analysis and the potentially adverse outcomes of ineffective supervision.
  2. Important Features of SupervisionCorey Robertson teaches the essential characteristics of a supervision process, and includes how to deal with potential legal issues, supervisory requirements, and special issues for specific clinical populations.
  3. Holding Effective MeetingsShauna Costello prepares participants to use tools and templates for holding productive meetings that can enhance the supervisor-supervisee relationship.
  4. Behavior Skills Training for SupervisorsDr. Kristin Myers-Kemp demonstrates the correct application of behavioral skills training (BST) using in-person and video modeling, including monitoring techniques during the rehearsal stage.
  5. Delivering Performance FeedbackKelly Therrien applies the science of behavior to one’s communication skills as a supervisor and shares tools for delivering performance feedback to trainees, supervisees, and other staff members.
