Become a Registered Behavior Technician
A Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) is a paraprofessional certification in behavior analysis. RBTs assist in the delivery of treatment plans for individuals with a variety of behavioral needs, including Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), brain injuries, Alzheimer's disease, and addiction. RBTs work with Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) as part of a clinical team to implement treatment plans that support the growth and success of their clients. RBTs work with clients to help them learn practical and necessary skills in areas such as safety, communication, self-advocacy, and independence. Certified RBTs frequently work in a variety of settings, including private homes, schools, clinics, and community settings.
