Supervisor Requirements
*Each RBT must have at least one supervisor who publicly attests to supervise his/her practice on the forthcoming RBT Registry at www.BACB.com.

Supervisors must:

hold the BCBA or BCaBA credential
complete an 8-hr training (may be split into shorter units) based on the BACB Supervisor Training Curriculum prior to supervising.
Each RBT must obtain ongoing supervision for a minimum of 5% of the hours spent providing applied behavior-analytic services per month.
Supervision must include at least 2 face-to-face, synchronous contacts per month during which the supervisor observes the RBT providing services (this may be conducted via the Internet).
At least 1 of the 2 supervisory contacts must be one-on-one, but the other can occur in a small-group meeting.
Quarterly Meeting for Executive and Clinical Directors
Innovative Technology
Behavior Analytic Term, "BAT" Story Boards
To make learning fun
and more interesting!
Our Vision
Here's where we're going...
Proof of Concept Probe
Here's What we are Doing

To help make terms really stick during Direct Service Provider trainings
To best serve the children and families we work with
We created a brief survey asking you to rank terms/concepts that Direct Service Providers are taught, in the order of importance

Selected 4 terms ranked the highest (NET, positive reinforcement, incidental teaching, and functions of behavior) and collaborated with artist, Jonny Aguon to develop images for each concept

We will then assign 4 other random concepts, using more traditional training materials

We will test this concept by providing the training to our own PCFA staff, using both methods
The Leveling System
Completion of a predetermined number of modules, with a high level of accuracy leads to progress
Will include clear criteria
Competency tests
Fun titles for each level
Here's What You Told Me about Your Training Needs...
MasterMind Group Accomplishments
Training Needs: Recurring themes
Training Initiatives:
Leveling system
Ongoing trainings
Innovative technology
"BAT" Story Boards
Preliminary Concept Probe
White Papers, Publications

BCBA Level:
...and Direct Service Provider Level
More DSP Needs...

Professional boundaries:
client confidentiality, dual relationships, cultural sensitivity

More resources for remote locations

The Leveling System
Registered Behavior Technician (RBT)


is a is a paraprofessional who practices under the close, ongoing supervision of a BCBA or BCaBA (“designated RBT supervisor”)"
The RBT credential will complement the BCBA-D, BCBA, and BCaBA credentials as an entry-level program that reflects the education and training necessary for the duties of a behavior technician

RBT primarily responsible for:

direct implementation of skill-acquisition and behavior-reduction plans developed by the supervisor
May also collect data and conduct certain types of assessments (e.g., stimulus preference assessments)

Who is Eligible for the RBT Credential?
The applicant must:

Be at least 18 years of age
Possess a minimum of a high school diploma or national equivalent
Successfully complete a criminal background registry check at the time of application
Complete a 40-hour training program (conducted by a BACB certificant) based on the RBT Task List
Pass the RBT Competency Assessment administered by a BACB certificant
Pay a $50 application fee (annual renewal fees are $35)
Sample of RBT Curriculum
Comic life
Smart phone enabled flash card system
Virtual reality glasses

Some Tools we Will Use
To optimize ongoing trainings, audits, etc.

"Term and picture associations" will be a more effective method for teaching Direct Service Providers in comparison to standard training materials (i.e., flashcards, hand-outs).

We would like to test for this using either an alternating treatment design or a multiple baseline design across participants.

We will measure multiple variables, such as:

test performance, retention, demonstration of the procedure, etc.

technical and
explanations for ABA concepts

Antecedent interventions and improving overall quality of sessions

More preparation for:
parent interactions
services that we provide as an agency

More trainings on:
Effective prompting/prompt fading procedures, token economies, PECS basics

Extinction (and the difference between running extinction vs. punishment, etc.)
More memorable and enjoyable new hire training
role-play, immediate feedback, practice explaining the "When, Why, and How" for concepts

Data collection methods/graphing

Leveling system and standardization of materials across offices

Preference and Reinforcer Assessments
DSP Level Continued...
The MasterMind Group met across one year and accomplished the following:

1. Shared resources and ideas, including curricula which ultimately led to the

. This took about a year to accomplish.

2. They received the
Everyday Curriculum
from Gary which led to both of their presentations at Avant Garde Foster Family agency, and the implementation of the curriculum for their own cases.

3. Assisted with the organization of the new
BCBA guidelines and mentorship guidelines.

4. Built a
of colleagues across the country.

5. Supported each other each month with success stories and the
sharing of effective interventions

Thank you to Denise and Taeja for sharing this list!
Fundamental Components of Instructional Design
Methodologies to Support Trainings
Instructional Design:
a systematic design process (based on learning theories, information technology, systematic analysis, educational research, and management methods) that considers instruction from the perspective of the learner rather than from perspective of content (Morrison,2013,pg.6)

Problem-Based Learning:
student-centered approach,learning opportunities relevant to student, work collaboratively to problem-solve, instructor acts as facilitator

Clinical Decision-Making Algorithms
a map for teaching clinical decision making and protocol charts for guiding step-by-step care of specific problem, used for guiding patient care

Influences from Medical, Law Enforcement, and Military Training Modules
