The Training Curriculum for Supervisors of ABA Technicians in Autism Programs
The Training Curriculum for Supervisors of ABA Technicians in Autism Programs is designed to train supervisors and aspiring supervisors in evidence-based methods of supervising staff who provide ABA (applied behavior analysis) services for people with autism. The content is based on over four decades of ABA research and application on staff training and supervision as well as the authors’ hands-on experience. The content includes critical supervision knowledge and skills coinciding with the Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB©) task list for effective supervision, and provides the BACB’s required eight hours of supervision training. The curriculum is performance and competency-based, requiring trainees to meet classroom and on-the-job criteria to successfully complete the training. The Curriculum content is relevant for supervisors of staff providing ABA services across a variety of settings, including center-based programs, homes, schools, and clinics.
