Do you want to make a meaningful difference in the life of a young child with autism?
Are you ready for training that supports you in your professional growth?
We are passionate about the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and highlighting the way to a more meaningful future for our young learners. We believe every child has the ability to achieve great things, and we are guided by family-centered principles that demonstrate dignity and respect. From diagnosis to early intervention, we provide innovative, evidence-based therapy services to meet each child’s specific needs with compassion and a whole-family focus.
What are the professional roles in our Learning Centers?
Behavior Technicians (BTs) / RBTs (Registered Behavior Technicians) provide 1:1 direct care in ABA therapy learner sessions. Our program implements specifically focused interventions that are firmly rooted in behavior analysis and developmental relationship-based approaches. The learner’s individual plan of care is developed by one of our BCBAs, who also directs the therapy plan and supervises learner sessions in one of our state-of-the-art Learning Centers. Frequency and length of sessions are determined by the child’s individual assessment. Some service delivery in the home/community may also be recommended.
All BTs complete 40-hour coursework for RBT training. Highlights Healthcare provides this training. BTs can then sit for the paraprofessional certification exam to become an RBT.
What is a day in the life of a BT / RBT look like? What does an RBT do? Here are resources from a retired RBT who is passionate about ABA therapy and work in this field.
For BTs interested in taking the RBT exam, there is a series of study guides and resources available from ABA made easy, whose mission is to provide a comprehensive resource for those interested in learning ABA.
