Registered Behavior Technician

Building on Ability

Someone you know?

You’ve probably heard of or know of someone with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or some other behavior-related diagnosis.   

They may be children or adults. Their difficulties may be in the classroom, on the job or at home. And they’re not living the fullest life they can because of it.    

As a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT), you’ll assist a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) in helping patients modify behaviors that interfere with their ability to concentrate, communicate and socially interact with others.
