The Board Certified Behavior Analysts at Endeavor Behavioral follow the recommendations of the BACB for supervision activities cited below, and include opportunities and assignments related to these activities throughout your supervision period.

  • Conducting assessments related to the need for behavioral intervention (e.g., stimulus preference assessment, functional assessment, staff performance assessment)
  • Designing, implementing, and systematically monitoring skill-acquisition and behavior-reduction programs
  • Overseeing the implementation of behavior-analytic programs by others
  • Training, designing behavioral systems, and performance management
  • Other activities normally performed by a behavior analyst that are directly related to behavior analysis such as attending planning meetings regarding the behavior analytic program, researching the literature related to the program, and talking to individuals about the program

Our supervising BCBAs provide “face-to-face” supervision and performance feedback in the form of web-cameras, video/DVD/electronically recorded sessions, and video-conferencing. The supervisee is required to submit samples of recorded implementation of fieldwork hours, as well as written assignments given during the supervision period. Prior to engaging in a supervisory relationship, the BACB requires a written Supervision Contract be executed and signed by both parties to align the fieldwork experience with the supervision experience as defined on the BACB website under “Nature of Supervision”. Additionally, the supervisee and supervisor are responsible for collecting documentation for each supervision period on an Experience Supervision Form, to be provided by Endeavor Behavioral upon commencement of supervision.

Supervisees are responsible for finding multiple clients with whom they can conduct their fieldwork experience. According to the BACB, these clients may be any persons for whom behavior-analytic services are appropriate, but may not be related to or in the care of the supervisee, or a child of a caretaker related to the supervisee.

Please visit the Behavior Analyst Certification Board website at the address below to verify you meet the eligibility standards for coursework required to begin supervision. It is recommended you also visit the BACB website to for more information on Supervised Independent Fieldwork for BCBA and BCaBA certifications as applicants are responsible for ensuring that they meet current BACB Standards.
