As more and more individuals are getting certified as BCBAs, there are increased opportunities to grow as a clinical leader. Only a small percentage of BCBAs start their own practice and become their own bosses, while many BCBAs work for organizations or institutions for the bulk of their careers. Even a smaller number of BCBAs will make it to the highest level of the clinical leadership role in mid-to-large ABA organizations. In recent years, more resources and training opportunities to be an effective supervisor have become widely available, yet there are limited opportunities to learn how to be a leader within an ABA organization with the current climate of business operations in the field. Leading a large group of BCBAs and RBTs on top of working collaboratively with the operations team and other service providers requires far more than being a great BCBA. This panel discussion addresses some critical learning opportunities and difficult decision-making experiences, strategies, and tips to be a successful leader.
