Individual Staff Exception Request Form
Under certain, limited conditions, BHCOE will make conditional and time limited exceptions to our staff qualifications standards (D.09, D.10, and D.11 of the Standards of Excellence for Applied Behavior Analysis Services). When an organization generally meets a standard but has individual staff members who do not currently meet the standard, a staff exception request can be made.
Staff Exception Requests may be granted only under the following conditions:
Behavior Technician/Direct Care Staff (D.11): an exception may be granted for a behavior technician who does not yet meet the staff qualifications requirements when 1) there is a second language need fulfilled by this staff member or 2) the organization is providing services in an underserved service area
Supervisor (D.10): an exception may be granted for a supervisor who does not yet meet the staff qualifications requirements when 1) there is a second language need fulfilled by this staff member 2) the organization is providing services in an underserved service area or 3) the staff member is ready to sit for a credentialing exam
Clinical Director (D.09): an exception may be granted for a clinical director who meets the educational and certification requirements but does not yet meet the years of experience requirement.
When completing this application you will be required to upload documentary evidence of the staff member’s education, ABA training and ongoing supervision. You will be unable to complete the request form without this information. When you have this information ready to upload, please proceed with the following Staff Exception Request Form.
