Clinical Supervisors

Clinical Supervisors meet the requirements of the Ontario Autism Program, including the Childhood Budget. There will only be 1 Clinical Supervisor in the team who oversees evidence-based behavioral services. Tasks of Clinical Supervisors include but not limited to, assessing the student through informal and formal observations, developing and evaluating and updating behaviour plans, discussing assessment results goals and service options and progress with the family, training staff and caregiving, observing interventions and assessments carried out by staff and/or caregivers and monitoring intervention fidelity. While Clinical Supervisors assume full responsibility for the oversight of the behavioural services, Clinical Supervisors may delegate some of their duties to front-line behavioural therapists under their supervision. 

BCBA Program Supervisors 

Program Supervisors hold a master’s degree in special education, psychology, ABA, or other related field. They must be Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs). Program Supervisors directly consults with the students' direct service team, and are responsible for conducting initial assessment and ongoing assessment, developing treatment and behavior reduction plans, preparing individualized programs and program materials, monitoring child’s programs and progress, conducting and leading team meetings and providing direct supervision to therapy assistants. Program Supervisors  also conduct caregiver training and collaborate with other service providers (e.g., school, OT, SLP) as needed. 

Assistant Program Supervisors 

Program Supervisors hold a master’s degree in special education, psychology, ABA, or other related field. They typically are earning their BCBA hours with the BCBA Program Supervisors or are waiting to sit for their exam. Assistant Program Supervisors consult with the students' direct service team, and are responsible for conducting initial assessment and ongoing assessment, developing treatment and behavior reduction plans, preparing individualized programs and program materials, monitoring child’s programs and progress under BCBA Program Supervisor's supervision. They also directly conduct and lead team meetings and training to therapists. Assistant Program Supervisors also conduct caregiver training and collaborate with other service providers (e.g., school, OT, SLP) as needed. 

Instructor Therapist (IT)

The ABA Instructor Therapists provide direct intervention for your child as often as recommended by the Program Supervisor and approved by the funding department (if it applies).
