Currently, the demand for applied behavior analytic services far exceeds the number of individuals that can provide them. As a result, service providers have multiplied the number of individuals they hire in order to meet this need. Despite this increase in individuals working with clients, the number of qualified behavior analysts that can provide effective supervision for these individuals is in short supply. Specifically, in rural areas, the lack of access to qualified behavior analysts often results in poor supervision experiences and long delays in receiving appropriate training. Furthermore, the lack of access to adequate support results in further delay for individuals pursuing credentials. In order to address this problem, researchers and practitioners have begun to provide supervision and training via remote technologies. In rural areas, where behavior analysts are in short supply, remote technologies can be one solution to the problem. Providing supervision via remote technologies allows for expert supervision and training for individuals in areas that might not otherwise get access to effective supervision. In this series, three expert panelists will review and discuss empirically based approaches to supervision and training via remote technologies. In addition, they will discuss implications and suggestions for future research in this area.
