Description: This workshop is geared towards professionals who hold BCBA licensure and serve in a supervisory capacity in center- or home-based settings. We are targeting the behavior-analytic, ethical, and professional repertoires of professionals in the field, and hope to arm the attendees with a variety of evidence-based tactics and materials to directly and indirectly increase learner outcomes. Effective supervisors set clear expectations for supervisees and use a variety of the tactics and principles of behavior analysis to help their supervisees achieve objectives. We will review the CABAS Teacher Performance/Rate Accuracy procedure (Ross, Singer-Dudek & Greer, 2005), the CABAS Decision Protocol (Keohane & Greer, 2005), supervision forms, and types of feedback. We will discuss different situations that arise when supervising in a variety of settings and with staff with a wide range of experience.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to: (1) identify the different components of a TPRA and errorlessly code five different programs using the antecedent-behavior-consequence data collection method; (2)identify how a supervisor can appropriately respond in a way that benefits the supervisee and most importantly, the learner, in a way that maintains the integrity of the position and behavior analysis in general; (3) understand the decision analysis protocol and make decisions to intervene or continue with objectives accordingly.
Activities: Instructional strategies: lecture, discussion, small group break out, videos Supplemental materials will be distributed.
Audience: Intermediate and advanced. This workshop is for newly appointed supervisors or newly licensed BCBAs.
