Description: BCBAs who supervise and train RBTs are time-challenged to assist the RBT to acquire and maintain the essential skills to be successful implementing data-based practices. RBTs working in non-clinical settings require additional support and training as current ABA terminology and technology may not be supported in those environments. This workshop is designed for BCBAs who require additional strategies to support and supervise RBT’s in non-clinical settings utilizing time efficient and effective strategies to accelerate the RBT’s learning and skill acquisition. The workshop will present numerous evidence-based practices to add to the supervisors’ tool belt in order for the RBT to acquire the necessary skills. These individualized training protocols feature supervision documentation, vocabulary acquisition, skill demonstration, and feedback. All of these activities will aid the RBT to satisfactorily demonstrate competency to implement the task acquisition strategies and master the BACB task list to ensure delivery of current standards of care.
