Preparing the Next Generation of BCBAs

Dr. Rachael Sautter’s commitment to the field of autism and applied behavior analysis goes beyond the doors of the Y.A.L.E. School; it reaches into the future.

Sautter, director of Y.A.L.E. School’s Voorhees campus for students with autism, and an adjunct faculty member at Rowan University, provides supervision for professionals who are working to become board certified behavior analysts (BCBAs).

Sautter meets with clinicians weekly. As part of the mentoring relationship, they have an opportunity to monitor data on specific students at Y.A.L.E., and to take part in behavioral assessments.

“I believe we should all be giving back to the field, so it is important to me to help younger professionals get the quality experience they need,” said Sautter.

Currently, three of Y.A.L.E.’s teaching assistants are at Rowan University in the masters ABA program. In addition to her work with future BCBAs, Sautter provides supervision to interns and practicum students from Temple University, Rider University and Rowan University.

“Y.A.L.E. School’s Voorhees campus is an ideal training ground for future educators,” said Sautter. “I am thrilled to be able to help prepare the next generation for work in this field.”

Dr. Rachael Sautter will present at the March 13th FACES 4 Autism Conference at Richard Stockton College in Galloway, New Jersey. In the morning, attendees will hear from Dr. Jed Baker. Learn more about Dr. Sautter’s presentation at the conference and how to register here.
