 Apprentice Program

Children’s Autism Center provides exemplary supervision for future behavior analysts using the Apprentice Supervision Model developed by Hartley, Courtney, Rosswurm & LaMarca (2016). Using this model, competitive employees who have completed a minimum of 750 supervised direct service hours and have shown superior clinical and analytical skills transition into an apprentice role (paid) working closely with an experienced CAC behavior analyst on the administrative duties involved in therapy programming. The apprentice program allows mutual benefits for both the apprentice and the experienced behavior analyst by:

  • Affording the apprentice invaluable training on critical skills necessary to transition into a BCBA role (e.x. supervising therapists, treatment planning, report writing, etc.)
  • Allowing supervising behavior analyst more time to focus on supervising and analyzing client programs by reducing analyst’s administrative load
  • Increasing job satisfaction for both parties
  • Systematizing and streamlining the supervision process by offering a collaborative experience where expectations are upfront and clear, reciprocal evaluations are implemented, and  BACB Experience Standards criteria is met.
