This study evaluates the relationship between school mental health professionals' judged satisfaction of their supervision of nonprofessional childaides and adjustment changes in referred children seen by the aides. Fourteen professionals supervised 34 child‐aides who each provided, on average, 22 individual helping contacts to 13 children (N = 436). Satisfaction with supervision related positively to judged reductions in problem behaviors and gains in competence, as rated by children's classroom teachers, child‐aides, and supervising professionals. The results suggest that supervision may play a key role in aide effectiveness with children and may point to fruitful directions for future research.
