ABA Supervision Using Telehealth

ABA Supervision Using Telehealth 

As the demand for ABA services grows, so does the need for supervision. In vivo supervision is not always possible for every ABA supervision visit. Telehealth technology can ease the burden of providing supervision. This course will address how to deliver effective supervision via telehealth in compliance with BACB supervision standards.

The goal of this course is to provide behavior analysts in clinical settings with information useful for implementing telehealth in the supervision of trainees and those requiring ongoing supervision.

This training program is offered independent of the BACB®.
