These approved sites will combine on-site supervision with the supervision and guidance of FIT faculty.

Florida students: The Hybrid program is available in most of Florida. However, students that live in or near the Orlando or Melbourne areas are ineligible for the Hybrid M.A. and are encouraged to apply for the on-campus programs instead.

SITE APPROVAL: Contact your Adviser to request site approval

If you are not located at an approved practicum site, we have designed a site evaluation to get your site approved. Since you are not currently working at an ARPS (Approved Remote Practicum Site) you can request a Site Evaluation you’re your adviser. Site Reviews are done by our Program Advisers and Faculty. During this process they will evaluate your site for approval to use during your Intensive Practicum courses. Sites can click here to review the BARS and the BACB's recommendations for ASD sharing  to conduct a self-assessment. When you are ready, please email your Program Adviser confirming you have a site ready for review.

 This evaluation process will involve the student filling out an evaluation packet giving us information about the current practices of the site (all from the student's perspective). This will include questions about current supervision, training, assessments used, graphing, and data collection. In addition, we will also be asking for sample documents including client programs, graphs, and intervention plans.  Plus there will be a ~1 hr. online interview with the student. This evaluation process will be of no cost, and will be completed after all the paperwork has been submitted by the student, sometime during the term it's submitted.

Advisers are assigned by last name.
