Description: Recently, the number of behavior analysts in our field has increased significantly. However, as an unintended side effect, many practitioners are receiving less frequent and lower quality training and supervision. Moreover, training and supervision programs tend to be cumbersome and do not incorporate evidenced-based practices often times resulting in ineffective application of behavioral services. Establishing effective training and supervision protocol within an ABA practice is critical to its success. This workshop is designed to develop more effective trainers and supervisors within ABA organizations across learning environments. This workshop will demonstrate how to incorporate Behavioral Skills Training (BST), Precision Teaching (PT), and digital technology into a simplified training and supervision program that develops and maintains critical skills for effective ABA services. The workshop will cover training and supervision in online and in-person environments. The workshop will consist of three phases: Phase one will include an instructional design segment where attendees will learn how to create an evidenced-based training program. The second phase will involve teaching attendees how to train and supervise staff utilizing a unique blend of BST, PT, and digital technology. Lastly, the workshop will prepare attendees to maintain skill repertoires through simplified supervision and digital technology.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to: 1. Identify and define evidence-based training and supervision strategies 2. Develop an outline for training and supervision content using evidence-based strategies 3. Identify and set goals for trainers, supervisors, and their learners 4. Identify how to measure quality and effectiveness of their training and supervision 5. Plan for maintenance of skills through supervision
Activities: Activities: Workshop objectives will be met using behavioral skills training through the following activities: 1. Instructor presentation and group discussion 2. Individual and small group guided practice 3. Individual and small group competency building exercises
