The Registered Behavior TechnicianTM (RBT®) is a paraprofessional who practices under the close, ongoing supervision of a behavior analyst. This RBT training covers a variety of topics that are necessary for an individual to pursue a career as a behavior technician, working directly with individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders or other developmental disabilities. An RBT does not work independently but practices under the close, ongoing supervision of a Board certified behavior analyst.
Entry level RBTs start at an average range of $12-$17 or approximately $25,000-$35,000 per year. Several employment services report RBTs grossing as much as $35/hr and more.
This training course teaches evidence-based behavior Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) intervention techniques and strategies for individuals including: Data Measurement, Assessment, Skill Acquisition, Behavior Reduction, Documentation and Reporting, Professional Conduct and Scope of Practice. The training will cover all of the tasks in the RBT Task List including ethical requirements.
The demand for RBTs has exploded due to many insurances mandating that behavioral therapy be performed by an RBT under the supervision of a behavior analyst. Also, in April 2018, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that Autism rates in the US climbed to 1 in 59 births, so the demand for RBTs will keep increasing.
