About the presentation:

Precision Teaching is a highly effective system to help those achieve fluent behavior. Currently the Behavior Analyst Certification Board requires those pursuing BCBA/BCaBA certification to obtain 1000-15– hours of field experience, 5% of which must be in direct contact with a BCBA that provides supervision. Chartlytics/Central Reach provides an online distance Supervision program that uses Precision Teaching to make effective decisions about Trainee progress and teaches those pursuing certification how to make decision using SCC. The results has been a group of newly minted Behavior Analysts confident and capable at using PT with their learners. Discussion points will include where the program goes next and ways to improve existing Independent Field Experiences for those pursuing certification.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will learn how to apply Precision Teaching Principles to the Supervision process to increase Trainee knowledge in Behavior Analysis and PT.
  2. Pinpoints to target for Trainees to increase Behavior Analysis competency.
  3. How to disseminate Precision Teaching to those who may not have much background info.
