Do you have a heart for children and teens with special needs? Are you looking for a career that allows you to truly make a difference every day? At The Applied Behavior Center for Autism, we pride ourselves on our extensive in-house training and certification programs that allow our new employees to grow and excel within this exciting and growing field. If you have the heart for this industry, we have the ability to train you and teach you to work in this field.
Making a Difference Every Day
At ABC, our employees find more than a career; they find a calling. Each day, our staff works hard to make a tangible difference in the lives of children and teens with special needs. Our therapists form a strong bond with our patients and together, we work toward and celebrate milestones in the lives of our patients.
“This job is unlike anything else in the world,” said Sara Clark, BCaBA. “You might feel like you have a tough day one day and then the very next day, you meet with parents and they tell you that their child gave them a hug for the very first time or they responded when their sibling said their name for the first time. It’s moments like that that make this job special. When you work here, things are constantly being put into perspective for you. You are constantly reminded why you are here and why what you are doing really and truly matters.”
New Training Program
ABC is proud to offer our newest program which is an in-house training that prepares our therapy staff to receive the credential of Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). This is the newest credential offered by The Behavior Analyst Certification Board's (BACB). The training for this certification is provided free-of-charge to all incoming employees.
RBTs are trained and qualified paraprofessionals that are responsible for the direct implementation of behavior analytic programs and interventions written by Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and/or Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts (BCaBAs).
To become an RBT, the individual must complete 40 hours of training in behavior analysis. Then they must pass both a practical Competency Assessment with a BCBA or BCaBA and a written test maintained by the BACB. After obtaining their credential as an RBT, the RBT may only practice under the direct supervision of a BCBA or BCaBA. The BACB outlines several supervision standards and requirements for RBTs to ensure that consumers receive quality services.
The Applied Behavior Center for Autism values this newest credential offered by the BACB and recognizes that it provides more credibility and strength to the services that we provide. The RBT credential gives our patients a way of knowing that their direct care staff - typically referred to as ABA therapists - have received adequate training in our field and are qualified to deliver our services correctly and effectively.
To be considered for the new RBT position, applicants must be at least 18 years of age with a high school diploma. College degrees and previous experience with children are preferred but not required. Applicants must have a positive attitude and strong communication skills.
After being hired, employees must be First Aide trained and CPR certified. (We provide these trainings).
