The Behaviour Consultants for ABA Learning Centre, even those that are Board Certified Behaviour Analysts, are supervised by Dr. Suzanne Jacobsen, Founder, and Dr. Elizabeth Athens, Clinical Director. ABA Learning Centre has a number of Program Managers, and Program Supervisors, Student Program Supervisors who are in the process of completing the requirements to become certified. All ‘Program Managers’ are Board Certified Behaviour Analysts. All ABA LC Program Managers and Program Supervisors have education in behaviour analysis and supervised experience in providing intervention programs. Program Managers are assigned as a ‘case manager’ for each child’s program. Dr. Athens is kept informed about each child’s program and his or her progress through direct consultation and monthly team meeting minutes. Dr. Athens acts in a consultative capacity to support, advise, educate, supervise and facilitate the Program Managers and Program Supervisors to ensure the best possible service for a child and his/her family. This allows ABA LC to serve many more families than we otherwise could. Our Program Managers and Program Supervisors are extremely well-qualified, and in other organizations could call themselves behaviour consultants. We feel it is important for you to have access to the combined skills and experience which our team approach can offer. Our Program Managers and Supervisors can perform ABLLS-R, VB-MAPP and ESDM assessments and updates, prepare BPIs (Behaviour Plan of Intervention), monitor and update programs, and provide training and supervision to behaviour interventionists.
