Registered Behavior Technician

What is an RBT ? 

A Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) is a professional who works with individuals who may have developmental disabilities and their families and caregivers to provide Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy. The RBT is responsible for implementing behavior plans, collecting data on the individual’s behavior and progress, providing support to families, schools, and caregivers, and receiving direct supervision and support from BCBA and BCaBA team members.

RBTs play a vital role in helping individuals with behavior challenges achieve their full potential. They work one-on-one with clients to teach them new skills and reinforce positive behaviors. By doing so, RBTs help clients replace negative or maladaptive behaviors with more appropriate ones.

For example, an RBT might work with a child who engages in tantrum behavior, such as dropping to the floor and crying. The RBT would work alongside BCBA and BCaBAs to implement a behavior plan to teach the child to use communication skills to express their needs and wants instead of resorting to problem behaviors.

Additionally, RBTs provide support to clients with developmental disabilities, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), by teaching them independence, and self-care, and improving social and communication skills. RBTs receive extensive training and must pass a certification exam to become certified. They are required to have a high school diploma or equivalent, complete 40 hours of training, and pass a competency assessment.
