If you’ve earned your master’s degree or are enrolled in a master’s program and are working to complete additional requirements necessary to become a BCBA, you can continue your growth and development as a Program Coordinator.
As a Program Coordinator, you work under the direction of a BCBA to provide support to those who are impacted by autism or other conditions that interfere with daily living. This experience is incredibly valuable and the hours you work can count toward the 1500+ hours of supervised experience you need to complete to become a BCBA. You oversee the ABA services delivered by our Behavior Interventionists, so you also build and develop your supervisory skills along the way.
But with us, the experience is even better! With 22 locations across Southern California, access to around 100 BCBAs in our organization who are eager to mentor colleagues who are studying to become a BCBA, and the opportunity to work with individuals across the lifespan, the experience you gain is varied and very robust. With all this exposure, you’re sure to figure out your passion and your niche in the field.
Specifically, in this role you are involved with:
- Conducting Functional Behavioral Assessments for new clients
- Conducting Functional Analyses
- Developing and implementing treatment plans
- Developing data collection systems
- Conducting Interobserver Agreement (IOA)
- Providing supervision to Behavior Interventionist
- Participating in staff development
- Providing on-going parent training
To augment your hands-on training, we also provide you with access to in-house classroom-based training through our own 360 Behavioral Health University. Sessions offered through the 360 Behavioral Health University are designed to provide the CEUs you need once you become a BCBA, but we know this training is valuable even before you reach that milestone. So, we open up these special sessions to our Program Coordinators whenever seats are available.
We are as serious about your success as you are, so we take extra measures to help you prepare for your BCBA exam. We supply your study materials, and we provide study preparation and support. And once you pass your exam, we reimburse your exam fees. Once you become a BCBA, you are ready for the next step in your journey: working as a Clinical Supervisor.
