I am Dr. Kay, Board Certified Behavior Analyst and National Certified School Psychologist. I have been in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis since 2013 and behavioral health since 2010.

To become a BCBA, individuals must complete specific educational requirements, accumulate supervised experience hours, and pass a certification exam. The fieldwork supervision component is a crucial part of the certification process.
During fieldwork supervision, a BCBA supervisor provides guidance, feedback, and support to individuals seeking certification. The supervisor helps the trainee gain practical experience in applying behavior analytic principles and techniques, conducting assessments, developing behavior intervention plans, and working with clients.
