BCBA Supervision

Magiko Sympan Centre is the first centre in Greece to be supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst-Doctoral level (BCBA-D). We have experience supervising numerous Master’s students working towards BCBA certification from all over the world. This guarantees that training fulfills the international quality standards for supervision set by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) and gives you access to the official exams to become a BCBA (given that the student also fulfills other criteria as set by the BACB).

Individuals interested in broadening their knowledge and clinical skills and obtaining either the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) certification or the Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) certification can contact us. The duration, place and form of supervision are determined according to the trainee’s needs and supervisions can be conducted at distance.

“The high rating is a result of sincere satisfaction with the overall experience. Every meeting was productive and pleasant.

Katerina, you are a great supervisor/behavior analyst: ethical, knowledgeable and approachable. And as a result, inspiring. Thank you!”

“The supervision enriched me, I learned a lot with Katerina and was able to improve my practice. It also motivated me to carry on improving my knowledge in the field and conduct research on the procedures used.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being supervised by Katerina. I love the way she works and explains.”

Additionally, supervisions are offered to professionals, such as speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, special needs and mainstream teachers, and others who work with children and young people with Autism Spectrum Disorders and need guidance on how to design an effective intervention. This kind of supervision is designed according to the needs of the final client, the person receiving the therapy; at the same time, it is designed in a way that the specialists’ skills are developed, so that in the future they can cope with similar situations independently and successfully.

Supervision is offered in a group format (e.g., professionals, therapists and family-members) as well as individually (e.g., professional development), in-vivo as well as at distance.

Training is also offered to parents who need to further develop their skills on how to cope with behaviour problems and would benefit from an on-site assessment and demonstration of the correct way to react under each situation. In this kind of supervision, parents have the main role and emphasis is put on the immediate development of their practical skills, so that after the end of the training they are able to cope with similar situations and achieve positive changes. Research suggests that parental training and active participation plays an essential role in the outcomes of any therapeutic intervention.
