Our BCBA supervision focuses on teaching applied skills that prepare trainees for independence in a BCBA role. Learn how to apply BACB Task List concepts in real life scenarios! Our supervision emphasizes naturalistic teaching (NET) and individualizing strategies to be reflective of clients' strengths and preferences. Aligned with our mission at ABA Visualized, trainees will learn how to teach essential ABA skills using approachable language and relatable examples. We utilize ABAV's signature visual and interactive style to create an engaging supervisory experience. Get ready to role play!
As part of the ABAV team, you will receive individualized mentorship to help develop the skills needed to reach your BCBA goals.

How it works
~ Meet & Greet!
30 minute free consultation: We will meet virtually to discuss the overview of the supervision program, curriculum and requirements, including accumulating restricted vs. unrestricted hours. This time will also be used to discuss your personal interests and goals so that we can start to customize your individual experience! Following, you will have an opportunity to review and sign the required supervision contract and set up a reoccurring schedule for our meetings.
~ Weekly supervision meetings
We will meet online weekly at a designated time. ABAV has developed a comprehensive curriculum that encompasses teaching BACB Task List items through our signature visuals, applied skills activities, and access to carefully curated resources. Meetings will consist of interactive teaching of a topic including use of visuals, modeling, and role play, followed by structured assignments that will be completed independently outside of meeting times. Visuals are provided to support further independent learning. Our supervision services include ongoing feedback opportunities, mentorship, and customized training topics.
We also offer 1x per month group supervision in which BCBA trainees will meet virtually to discuss an applied skills topic such as Cultural Considerations When Working with Individuals with ASD, Strategies for Reducing Stigma, and How to Create & Lead a Training.
Interested in having ABAV oversee all of your hours (unrestricted + restricted)? We are available to conduct the required monthly client observations via live video or video recording while maintaining client confidentiality, as stated in our provided consent forms.
Interested in having ABAV oversee just your unrestricted hours? We can do this too! With our collection of independent activities, you will have plenty of opportunities to accumulate hours while learning essential skills.
~ Client observations
We are able to support in fulfilling the BACB requirement of at least one client observation per month, whether you will be doing this through your current employment or directly through us.
~ What it costs
Our hourly rate for supervision is $75 per hour for our 1:1 meetings & group supervision meetings. Following each meeting, we provide extra scenarios and resources for independent assignments. We have unrestricted hours activities galore! We are open & available throughout the supervisory experience for guidance and assignment assistance. The BACB requires supervision equal at least 5% of your fieldwork each month. For example, if you plan to accrue 60 total experience hours that month, you will be required to have 3 hours of supervision during the month. Invoices are sent monthly via an easy email payment.
