Applied Behaviour Analysis*Behavioural Education*Organizational Behaviour Management
Just like the science of our field, my supervision is dynamic, evidence-based and committed to success.
As a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst, I must adhere to the Behaviour Analyst Certification Board (BACB) Professional and Ethical Compliance Code for Behaviour Analysts (2016; updated 2019). My commitment to become a Supervisor of Trainees and possible certificants is reflected from my firm belief in the Code, to the field of ABA and to science of Behaviourism. I particularly refer to Sections 5, 6 and 7 of the Code as guiding principles of the supervision process. I also ensure that my supervisees, among other important concepts in the field, practice the dimensions of ABA espoused by Baer, Wolf & Risley (1968) to heart. Specifically, supervision is not just a commitment to make my supervisees gain their Independent Fieldwork Supervision hours and pass the rigorous BCBA or BCaBA exams. More importantly, supervision is a process of ensuring ethical practice, competence and professionalism in the field of ABA. This is for the utmost benefit of the populations we serve, especially those who are vulnerable.
Because I want to focus on the significant and meaningful process of supervision, and like a hands-on academic parent, I only take a limited number of supervisees at a time. I take supervisees on a rolling basis. I apply the science and principles of ABA in my own supervision practice. I use the software and the technology SupervisorABA.com to keep data and track of the baseline and skills acquired by my supervisees during the supervision process and to develop an individualised curriculum based on the Fourth or Fifth Edition Task Lists of the BACB (where applicable to each supervisee). My supervisees can freely access forms, assignments and readings and see graphs and visual display of their performance through the software.
Currently, I provide distance and online supervision, worldwide. Distance supervision uses privacy compliant tools and encryption processes, through Zoom.
Individual or one-on-one Supervision
Although group supervision is allowed in certain circumstances, I am only taking supervisees and trainees on an individual or one-on-one basis. Furthermore, although there is no limitation that the Behaviour Analyst Certification Board (BACB) imposes on the number of supervisees one can take, I only limit to supervise a handful of trainees in order to focus on effective supervision. This focus allows for comprehensive, creative and meaningful activities, to gear the supervisees to be competent and ethical professionals in the field, over and above or beyond passing the BCBA or BCaBA exam.
For the Supervised Independent Fieldwork, the BACB requires at least a minimum of two meetings between the Supervisor and Supervisee and at least a minimum of two observations of the trainee with the client per supervisory period (1 calendar month). This applies to both BCBA and BCaBA supervisees.
