Expectation for Success:
A successful RBT shows enthusiasm for the field of ABA and how their role impacts the lives of children from the ages of 18 months to 18 years old. The RBT will be comfortable with their skills in reducing problem behaviors as directed by an individualized treatment plan while taking contemporaneous data. Your interaction with children and their families is purely an ethical one, maintaining boundaries while keeping open communication through your BCBA and the family.
A Day in the Life:
RBT’s create a fun and motivational environment and gathers their materials to be used in session which helps to fully engage their learner in discrete trial sets of skill acquisitions while taking data. You will also work to decrease maladaptive behaviors. This is done within daily sessions which last up to six hours in length. You will use technology to take data through an application on your phone or tablet. Once each session with your client is complete, you will type comprehensive notes detailing your session and any outcomes. You may refer to the portal to review the programs your analyst has created so that you know what you’re working on with your learner for that day. Once your learner has obtained mastery level of the skill, you will conduct maintenance probes of the skill for retention, while also introducing new skills. RBT’s may work on an array of skills from developmentally appropriate skills to socially acceptable skills. Your supervisor will observe you in sessions and answer any questions you may have or provide you with feedback.
