SUPERVISED INDEPENDENT FIELDWORK

BCBA LEVEL: (1500 hours BCBA, 1000 hours BCaBA):

BCBA LEVEL: To qualify under this standard at the BCBA level supervisees must complete 1500 hours of Supervised Independent Fieldwork in Behavior  analysis.
BCaBA LEVEL: To qualify under this standard at the BCaBA level, supervisees must complete 1000 hours of Supervised Independent Fieldwork in Behaviour analysis.

A supervisory period is two weeks
In order to count experience hours within any given supervisory period, supervisees must be supervised at least once during that period for no less than 5% of the total hours spent in Supervised Independent Fieldwork. For example, 20 hours of xperience would include at least 1 supervised hour. No fewer than 10 hours but no more than 30 hours, including supervision, may be accrued per week.

TO CALCULATE ACCUMILATED HOURS:

1.EVERY TWO WEEKS is a supervisory period

2.Once every two-week period to count fieldwork : at least 10 hrs field work and no more than 30 hrs

INDIVIDUAL SUPERVISION
1. Keep a log book with all hrs completed doing ABA activities (see list above).

2.Should count 50%+ of supervision

3.Can be combined with group supervision

4.If no individual supervision every 2 weeks then no hrs are accumulated

GROUP SUPERVISION

1.CANNOT count more than 50% of supervision

2. 2-10 people

3.Curriculum training (Topic training for every month) OR group open-ended case reviews

SUPERVISION:

5% OF FIELDWORK hrs for 2 weeks period

If student completes 60hrs then 30 hrs week 1 and 30 hrs week 2= 3 hrs

Minimum 10 hrs

10 hrs fieldwork= 30 min supervision

Maximum fieldwork per week = 30 hrs

30 hrs fieldwork = 1.5 hrs of supervision
