Summit provides a measurement driven supervision experience for professionals seeking certification as Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) or Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts (BCaBA) under the Supervised Independent Fieldwork Experience requirement of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB®). Supervision is provided by Dr. Hughes-Lika, who has been providing BCBA and BCaBA supervision services for the past 12 years. Additionally, she has developed a comprehensive and competency-based supervision model which she has presented at various national and international conferences.
In 2015, Dr. Hughes-Lika was awarded the Society for the Advancement of Behavior Analysis (SABA) International Development Grant, for her work to disseminate behavior analysis in Albania. She is passionate about educating others about the field of behavior analysis, both locally and abroad, and previous supervisees of Dr. Hughes-Lika can be found in the following countries:
| USA | Greece | Sicily | Scotland | Russia |
| Albania | China | England | Poland | Canada |
Supervision will be provided at least once every two weeks, at the designated supervision date and time, for at least the minimum 5% of the candidates total hours independent fieldwork during that time period. Supervision hours can be counted towards the total number of independent fieldwork hours. However, in order to successfully complete all of the necessary components of the independent fieldwork, demonstrating both knowledge-based and performance-based competencies, more hours could be recommended at the discretion of the supervisor.
Supervision will focus on helping the candidate learn new behavior analytic skills related to the BACB Fourth Edition Task List. A copy of the Task List will be provided to candidates once supervision commences.
Supervision hours will focus on 1:1 candidate-client interactions. Supervision will be conducted insitu, or via web-camera, videotape, video conferencing, or similar means in lieu of the supervisor being physically present. Supervision may be conducted in small groups for no more than half of the total supervised hours in each supervisory period. Small groups are interactive meetings in which 2-10 supervisees who share similar experiences participate in the supervision activities described above.
