Effective supervision is critical to the quality of ongoing behavioral services, the professional development of the supervisee, the continued growth of
the supervisor, and the overall development of our field and its practice.” (Sellers, Valentino, & LeBlanc, 2016). There is a lack of defined practices and curriculum when it comes to providing supervision to supervisees and a drastic increase in the number of individual pursuing
certification through the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) in the past 5 years. As a result, supervisors need to ensure they are implementing best-practices when providing supervision, which incorporates competency-based assessments of skills, development of training plans to increase specific skills related to BACB task list items, problem-solving skills, decision-making skills, and ethical and professional development. Numerous changes to supervision standards have also begun that will affect the supervisory process, and should begin to affect that process now to better prepare current and future implementers within the field of Applied Behavior Analysis.
