Stage 2: Approved Remote Practicum Sites of the Hybrid MA in Professional Behavior Analysis

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  If a student is at an ARP or *Host site, they must also complete a WPA with their application.  To verify your acceptance by the site, submit the Workplace Agreement form to us along with your application.  If you have any questions, please e-mail them to: hybrid@fit.edu.   

 

Approved Remote Practicum Sites

Students will join our mentorship program and begin the approval process for their current site as an approved remote practicum site (ARPS) after they have completed our first course, BEHP5011 and completed our pre-applicaiton survey. We currently have over 140 approved sites throughout the world. These sites are approved based on our behaviorally anchored rating scale (BARS).  Sites can click here to review the BARS and conduct a self-assessment.  To be an ARPS, the agency must agree to provide at least one hour of individual supervision to each student weekly for the duration of the practicum (3 semesters across one year).  

*Hybrid Host Sites

Our hybrid host sites are agencies with whom we have signed a memorandum of understanding and have placed a faculty member. We conduct live classes, groups of practicum and capstone supervision and integrate our faculty with their agency. We also broadcast these didactic classes to our students who are located at an approved remote practicum site. *This was our prior model and have 3 host sites remaining: Behavior Analysis Center for Autism in Fishers, IN with Dr. Neff, Comprehensive Autism Center in Oceanside, CA, with Dr. Krebs, STE Consultants and The Kendall Centers in Central California with Dr. Colon.
