BCBA Certification Program

BCBA and BCaBA External Supervision and Training Program

KidsLink Neurobehavioral Center offers an external supervision and training program for individuals pursuing their Board Certified Behavioral Analyst (BCBA) or Board Certified assistant Behavioral Analyst (BCaBA) certification. The program meets all of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) requirements for supervision. KidsLink’s program offers a wide variety of opportunities for learning and growth that make this program a rich experience. The program focuses on the application of behavioral principles to the daily practice of candidates. In addition, KidsLink has a variety of potential placement options for those who do not currently have a placement setting in which to complete their supervision hours.

One of the key features that make this program unique is the focus on team learning, experience, and supervision. There are weekly opportunities for group supervision with other enthusiastic candidates, and monthly behavior committee meetings that are attended by psychologists, speech/language pathologists, occupational therapists, intervention specialists, and current BCBAs. This team approach is invaluable to all who participate.

Supervision will include individual and group with the goal of giving a well-rounded experience. Individual supervision will be in person when available or via video or video-chatting. An observation form with feedback will be written up for each supervision. Progress reviews that measure strengths and areas of growth will be conducted periodically. By providing regular feedback the candidate will be given ample opportunity to apply their knowledge to their individual practice of ABA. Group supervision will be available on a weekly basis and will include the opportunity to use clinical and behavioral terms, review current literature, practice behavior analytical skills, listen to guest speakers, and build relationships with other candidates. Candidates also participate in a center-wide interdisciplinary behavior management committee.

There are two options for completing the required hours for either the BCBA or BCaBA supervision programs. One option is 12 months in length and the other 18 months in length depending on the number of hours to be completed per week. The program fee covers all associated costs.
