1 BACB Updates and Changes By: Tiffany N. Kilby, MS, BCBA August 2014 Note: The Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) does not sponsor, approve, or endorse The Behavior Station, the materials, information, or sessions identified herein.

2 On-Set of Supervisory Relationship: Supervisors and Supervisees Supervisor and supervisee must review, at minimum, the following documents prior to the supervisee beginning the experience: 1. BACB Experience Standards (Updated 1/13/14) 2. Supervision Contract Contract Templates Supervisor may also create a supervision contract (in compliance with BACB requirements)

3 Summary of BACB Experience Standards Supervisee cannot start accumulating hours for the BCBA or BCaBA exams until they have begun attending courses required for BACB coursework requirements Supervisee must work hours per week This includes work done for clients outside of the session Supervised Independent Fieldwork Supervisory period is 2 weeks long (different from practicum) Must have a supervision form filled out by at least one BCBA during the 2-week supervisory period Total amount of supervision per supervisory period must be at least 5% of total hours spent (across all supervisors) BCBA: 1500 hours BCaBA: 1000 hours Types of hours to accumulate Independent Hours Direct implementation Indirect implementation Supervision Individual Small group - Only for those who began their experience with a supervisor starting If a supervisee s experience with a particular supervisor started before 2014, the direct implementation line on the supervisee s forms will be left blank Supervisee cannot accumulate more than 5 years of experience

4 Direct vs. Indirect Direct Running programming/targets with client Discrete trial training (DTT) Natural environment training (NET) Incidental teaching Direct hours can only be accumulated while face-to-face with the client. However, indirect implementation does not mean that the client is not present. Indirect hours that can be accumulated while face-toface with the client Indirect Conducting assessments Preference assessment Functional assessment Staff performance assessment Probing for ABLLS, AFLS, VB-MAPP goals/skills Designing, implementing, and systematically monitoring skill-acquisition and behavior reduction programs Overseeing the implementation of behavioranalytic programs by others Training, designing behavioral systems, and performance management Other activities normally performed by a behavior analyst that are directly related to behavior analysis Attending planning meetings regarding the behavior analytic program Researching the literature related to the program Talking to individuals about the program Parents (at end of session) Other therapists Parent Training

5 Direct vs. Indirect so what does this mean for supervisees and supervisors? Supervisees responsible for logging hours Number of hours (must be per week) Type of hours Direct Indirect Supervisors responsible for signing off on hours

6 Supervisees Logging Hours Independent Hours: Supervisor not present Group Supervision: Meeting with 2-10 supervisees Only independent hours will be included as direct or indirect (supervised hours will not count here) Individual Supervision: Hours spent 1-on-1 with or talking to supervisor Total Hours: Excel will automatically do the math here

7 Besides the supervisee log, where are the hours recorded? BACB Experience Supervision Form Filled out per supervisory period BACB Experience Verification Form Filled out by each supervisor at the end of the experience

8 Supervision Forms per Supervisor Each supervisor must fill out a form for each supervisee Jenny works with 4 clients. She has 3 supervisors, so she will have 3 sets of supervision documentation. 1. AB with Tiffany 2. CD with Janelle 3. EF with Kelsey GH with Kelsey

9 Supervision Form (BACB Supervision Form or equivalent can be made by supervisor*) Must be filled out at the end of each supervisory period Supervisory period may be different for each supervisee/supervisor Filled out at the end because the total number of hours worked under the supervision of that particular supervisor must be signed off on This is the tricky part when a supervisee is supervised in the middle of their supervisory period *Supervisors who want to make their own equivalent of the BACB form, see page 5 of BACB Experience Standards

10 On-Set of Supervisory Relationship: Supervisors and Supervisees Supervisor and supervisee must review, at minimum, the following documents prior to the supervisee beginning the experience: 1. BACB Experience Standards (Updated 1/13/14) 2. Supervision Contract Contract Templates Supervisor may also create a supervision contract (in compliance with BACB requirements) Supervision form should be signed at the end of each supervisory period Supervision form (pg. 6 of BACB Experience Standards ) Supervisee is responsible for reporting all hours worked per supervisor per supervisory period All of this supervision documentation must be retained by both supervisor and supervisee for at least 7 years May be electronic and/or hardcopies

11 Supervisory Relationship: Supervisors and Supervisees BACB requires supervisor and supervisee to review BACB Experience Standards before experience begins BACB Experience Standards (Updated 1/13/14) Supervisor and supervisee have a supervision contract Contract Templates Supervisor may also create a supervision contract (in accordance with BACB requirements) Supervision form should be signed at the end of each supervisory period Supervision form (pg. 6 of BACB Experience Standards ) Supervisee is responsible for reporting all hours worked per supervisor per supervisory period All supervision documentation must be retained by both supervisor and supervisee for at least 7 years May be electronic and/or hardcopies

12 Changes for Supervisors Pass 8-hour supervision workshop By January 1, 2015 Pass online supervision training module (bacb.com) By January 1, 2015 Continuing Education (CEs) Cycles that start on/after January 1, 2015 have new requirements See February 2013 newsletter for specific details

13 Changes for Applicants/ Supervisees Pass online training module (bacb.com) By January 1, 2015 New coursework requirements for 4 th Edition Task List For those who apply on/after January 1, 2015 For BCBA applicants degree requirement change Master s degree from accredited university that was (a) conferred in behavior analysis, education, psychology or (b) conferred in degree program in which the candidate completed a BACB approved course sequence Effective January 1, 2016

14 Q & A Q: In the case when a person has been in the same experience since before they were required to keep track of direct implementation of hours, what does the supervisee do at the end of the experience now that direct implementation hours need to be reported? Do they do an estimate of direct hours completed before January 2014, or do they have two Experience Verification Forms signed (one before January 2014, and one after)? A: The BACB has decided that those who began their experience prior to 2014, are exempt from the direct implementation requirement and may leave the space provided on the form blank. Anyone who began their experience in 2014 must be recording the amount spent in direct implementation.

15 Q & A Q: If a potential applicant will complete the sequence of necessary coursework at the end of this year (e.g., November), and cannot sit for the application until February 2015, will the applicant have to retake classes in order to satisfy the updated coursework requirements which are effective January 2015? A: If an applicant applies after December 31, 2014 with 3 rd edition coursework, they must complete additional coursework to satisfy the increase in content hours associated with the 4 th edition. After December 31, 2014, the BACB will only accept 4 th edition coursework. Q: If an individual applies this year (2014) for an exam next year (2015), the 3rd addition coursework is what they must have completed, correct? A: Correct. The BACB will only be accepting 3 rd edition coursework until December 31, After this date, those who completed 3 rd edition will need to complete additional courses to satisfy the increase in content hours associated with the 4 th edition. The BACB is also accepting 4 th edition coursework at this time.

16 Q & A Q: Does a BCaBA have to complete a total of 1500 required for the BCBA exam, or does the BCaBA only have to complete 500 more hours to be eligible for the BCBA exam? A: As a BCaBA, you are automatically credited with 1000 hours and only need to submit the remaining 500 hours of experience. If you begin these remaining hours in 2014, you will need to record the amount spent in direct implementation where no more than 50% of your total hours may be spent in direct implementation. Q: The BCaBA is credited with 1000 hours for passing the exam. If an individual is not a BCaBA, their coursework hours for taking the BCBA exam only count after starting master s coursework in ABA (in other words, their experience hours that made them eligible for the BCaBA exam will no longer count). A: Correct, those who are not certified a BCaBA must have completed the coursework at the graduate level in order for the coursework and experience hours to transfer towards the BCBA application.

17 Q & A Q: After the start of 2015, if an individual becomes a BCBA, how long do they have to satisfy the requirement for the mandatory supervision workshop and online module? A: The online training modules and 8 hour supervision training completed through an ACE provider are requirements that must be completed if a BCBA is wanting to supervise experience hours for applicants. Once a BCBA, you must complete these requirements prior to supervising any experience hours in Once certified after 2015, there is no time frame to complete the training modules; the BACB just requires that supervisors complete the supervision requirements prior to supervising any hours in So, you are eligible to supervise as soon as you complete the supervision requirements once certified.
