Frequently Asked Questions
How many hours of supervision can I expect to gain each week?
This will vary depending on how many cases you are assigned to. Each case is overseen by a BCBA; many of our BCBAs have completed their 8-hour supervision course so they are able to provide supervision to you on each case you work together on. 1:1 supervision is also provided in a didactic style for approximately one hour per week with the Clinical Director or Clinical Supervisor. During these supervision sessions, you will gain practice discussing ABA in a technical and scientific manner. You and the supervisor may also review test mocks to practice for the big exam.
How are supervision meetings conducted?
Due to Covid-19, Zoom and Google Hangouts are being offered as a means to provide group supervision. In-person supervision is also being offered for those who are comfortable meeting in person. Individual supervision is provided on-site with clients, and indirect work pertaining to cases shared by the BCBA and supervisee may be completed remotely as assigned by the supervising BCBA.
How many students has CPT Supervised?
Over the years, CPT has supervised dozens of ABA students aspiring to become BCBAs. The clinical team has several years’ experience supervising students. The style of supervision is friendly, informative, and well perceived by students.
