Available Positions

A Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) is a paraprofessional certification in behavior analysis that is granted by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB). RBTs work under the close, ongoing supervision of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) or a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA). The role of an RBT is to provide direct behavior-analytic services, implementing behavior intervention plans designed by the supervising BCBA.

The primary duties of an RBT often include:

  • Implementing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services, as directed by the supervising BCBA.
  • Collecting data on client progress and responding to that data under the supervision of a BCBA.
  • Assisting in the assessment of behavioral skills and needs.
  • Providing direct client care in one-on-one or group settings.

To become an RBT, individuals must complete specific training, pass a competency assessment, and pass the RBT certification exam. This certification ensures that they possess the necessary skills and knowledge to carry out behavior-analytic services effectively.

A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) is a graduate-level certification in behavior analysis that is offered by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB). Professionals who hold this certification are trained in the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and are authorized to provide and supervise behavior analytic services.

Here are key aspects of the BCBA role:

  1. Education and Training Requirements: To qualify for the BCBA certification, individuals must hold at least a master’s degree from an accredited university in behavior analysis, psychology, or a related field. Additionally, they are required to complete specific graduate-level coursework in behavior analysis and gain supervised practical experience.
  2. Examination: Candidates must pass the BCBA examination, which assesses their knowledge and skills in designing, implementing, and evaluating behavior analysis programs.
  3. Scope of Practice: BCBAs design and supervise behavioral interventions, conduct behavioral assessments, and develop treatment plans for clients with various needs, including those with developmental disorders such as autism. They work in a variety of settings such as schools, private practices, hospitals, and residential facilities.
  4. Ethical Obligations: BCBAs adhere to a strict set of ethical guidelines that govern their professional conduct to ensure the welfare of their clients and maintain the integrity of the profession.
  5. Ongoing Education: To maintain their certification, BCBAs must complete continuing education courses throughout their career to ensure they remain knowledgeable about the latest research and practices in behavior analysis.

BCBAs play a critical role in the field of behavior analysis, providing essential services that improve the lives of individuals by enhancing their behavioral, social, and learning experiences.
