Our Supervision Program

Key Autism Services’ (KAS) Supervision and Practicum Program trains students on what it takes to be a successful BCBA. We provide hands on learning and real-life experiences while following the BACB Experience Standards. Upon completion of the program, students have the tools and skills necessary to confidently start their careers. We are proud to provide students with an opportunity to be employed as a Behavior Therapist while meeting their supervision and practicum hour requirements.

Students are assigned to provide direct ABA therapy to at least 1 client and a senior level, experienced BCBA delivers BACB supervision simultaneously. Supervision from BCBAs at KAS will take place remotely, as well as in person with video observations as needed. Our Supervision Program emphasizes foundational and applied knowledge within the KAS Supervision Curriculum. Our Curriculum consists of nine stages total, across 2 sections: Foundational Knowledge and Applications. Within the two sections, our Supervision Curriculum has a section dedicated to learning terms to fluency, relevant research/literature, application of taught skills, and unrestricted activities. Supplemental materials (podcasts, informational videos) are also provided to assist supervisees in becoming more familiar with the specific terminology required.

Our Supervision Program serves as a worksite for students who are receiving supervision from their university program. Employees in our Supervision Program are paid for the restricted (direct) hours that are a part of their position as a Behavior Therapist. Students are provided with unrestricted activity opportunities that fulfill the unrestricted hours requirement through the BACB. We also assist with preparation for the exam and provide group supervision opportunities.
We believe in collaboration with other professionals and have standing partnerships with various  related programs. Connecting with other students is an important part of learning. To qualify for the Supervision Program, you must be actively employed through KAS while providing direct services for at least 30 days, enrolled in your first graduate ABA course, and have 1 to 2 years’ experience working within the field of ABA or with children with autism.
Our Supervision Program will assist you in determining your own future success as a BCBA. With our mentoring, guidance, and hands-on training, you will be able to create your own successful career path. Come learn and grow with us!
