Registered Behavior Technician 

Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT) are therapists who work one-on-one with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. RBTs utilize the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to implement a treatment plan under the direction of a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). The main responsibilities of an RBT are to implement day to day programming with respect to each individual client’s treatment plan, follow respective client’s Behavior Intervention Plan to reduce challenging behavior, record and input data, and communicate with members of each client’s therapy team.
