Abstract: Supervision has become an increasingly greater challenge in the field of ABA as the rate of practitioners increases. Appropriate supervision for practitioners is the foundation for building the next generation of behavior analysts. The panel will discuss issues and scenarios that have arisen for BCBAs in the process of providing supervision, and offer solutions to help BCBAs overcome these challenges. Panelists will also address the ethical guidelines for providing supervision, which are presented in the Professional and Ethical Compliance Code for Behavior Analysts, discussing violations to that code. The BCBA community has voiced an increasingly urgent need for a structured guide to successfully and strategically implement a supervision program. To meet this need, Special Learning, with guidance from Dr. Jon Bailey, has developed a curriculum to guide BCBAs through the process of providing effective supervision. This presentation will provide a detailed explanation of steps that should be followed to provide appropriate supervision, starting with the initial meeting and continuing until supervision is complete. Part of this unique approach to supervision is a flowchart created by Dr. Jon Bailey, which provides step-by-step guidance for teaching supervisees. Panelists will answer questions from the audience, providing guidance for behavior analysts.
