A Guide to Creating Meaningful Supervision Activities and Measures
The primary objective of supervising individuals who are accruing supervision hours toward the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) edibility requirements is to provide experiential learning opportunities that target the skills needed to be a successful BCBA. Although the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB)’s Supervised Fieldwork Requirements describe acceptable, restricted, and unrestricted activities, it does not provide specific recommendations for activities/assignments that capture meaningful aspects of the BCBA experience. This talk will review the essential objectives of supervision, describe specific activities that target restricted and unrestricted supervision hours, and provide rubrics for evaluating the supervisee’s performance when participating in the recommended activities. The activities/assignments described in this talk are adaptable to any setting/client population within the scope of BCBA supervision.
