How It Got Started
All three founders have separately taken an interest in best supervision practices from a variety of lenses. Initially, the plan had been to use this framework to create research demonstrating the effectiveness of the model first. In March 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all non-BCBA level staff were furloughed. The founders of Supervision Reimagined continued to feel strongly about the model they had developed, and decided to continues the work after hours. Dissemination plays a critical and often undervalued role in the field of ABA and development of qualified providers. Through all those familiar virtual tools, they have been able to build a model that generates humane and scientific behavior analysts that can practice independently within their competency.
