Course description

Who We are Looking for

We hope to work with those interested in applying the principles of behavior analysis and using an empirically validated measurement tool. We want to mentor committed individuals looking to make meaningful change in the lives of children and adults through behavior analytic services.

Precision Measurement for Precision Decision Making

Becoming a BCBA or a BCaBA is no small achievement, so it is important you receive the support and instruction necessary for success. Our program offers a unique approach to applying behavior analytic principles in a strong measurement framework. All of our instructors have experience using the principles of behavior and Precision Teaching. You can be sure that you will not only receive your supervision hours, but will attain critical skills and education necessary to flourish as a behavior analyst.

Supervision Framework

Our supervision program will prepare you to apply behavior analytic principles and use the components of Precision Teaching. Through an individualized approach to supervision, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of behavior analysis and a level of competency with clinical applications commensurate with certification requirements.

What is Involved:


Introduction to the supervision process and assessment of needs and interests


Using empirically validated literature to assist in solving problems and answering questions


Precisely defining behavior using movement cycles, learning channels, and pinpoints


Using the Standard Celeration Chart, line graphs, and bar graphs to make good decisions


Knowing when to make a change


Monitoring behavior interventions



Engaging in group sessions to build a network and learn from each other*
Customized experience to maximize your time as a supervisee


Troubleshooting issues that occur in practice


Access to a team of behavior analysts that have specialized interests and expertise

How We Supervise:

Online Video Conference
You and your BCBA can talk, review documents, and interact from anywhere in the world.

One-on-one and Group
A portion of your supervision will be split between one-on-one meetings with your BCBA supervisor and group sessions with your supervisor and peers. We find the mixture of personalized and group interactions works best to expose supervisees to a rich perspective and knowledge from peers and experts.

Private Cohort Forums
You and your peers will be given exclusive access to a private forum. Here you can discuss what you are learning, ask for help, share discoveries, coordinate study groups, ask questions, and more.

Our Promise

Our goal is to ensure you get the support and supervision you need to work with all types of learners. We want to be there for the people like yourself who are passionate and focused on changing learners’ lives. From online supervision to training on the latest tools, we are always working to give you the best the industry has to offer. By the time you're done here, you will not only receive your required supervision hours, but you will be equipped to handle the work that comes with being a BCBA.
