ABSRACT:

When it comes to providing 1:1 ABA services, supervision by a seasoned BCBA is a key component in the client’s overall success. When supervision is not good, the Behavior therapist working the case may not feel supported, and display large skill deficits in the program areas that have been targeted for the client. BCBAs, BCaBAs, and QBHPs need to be held to a high standard of supervision per the ethics code of the BACB, to ensure quality 1:1 ABA services are presented, and client outcomes are maximized.
