Once you are accepted into our supervised independent fieldwork program, you will take a mock exam so that we are able to gather baseline data on the Task List domains.  Based on the results we will create an individualized plan for you to maintain your strengths and increases skills and knowledge where needed.  This plan will be reviewed with both you and the BCBAs providing the supervision so that we will be able to track progress.   

We provide opportunities to engage in unrestricted hours in a variety of ways and often based on your areas of interested.  However, we do provide various rotations throughout the year that provide opportunities to learn across environments. Some examples of what past Student Analysts have done include: shadowing in a school setting, assisting with assessments, assisting with functional analysis, developing behavior intervention plans, collaborating with other therapy providers, creating and providing training to our staff, completing OBM projects, targeting organizational wellness, or developing cross functional process maps and behaviorally anchored rating scales.   

You will be able to keep track of your restricted and unrestricted hours using Pinnacle, which is a performance evaluation system designed to help deliver better patient outcomes.  It allows us to nurture Student Analyst development and accelerate performance through pinpointed goals and data-base feedback. To learn more about Pinnacle, click here.
