Behavior Therapist (RBT)

Florida Autism Center Temple Terrace, FL
  • Expired: December 03, 2019. Applications are no longer accepted.

Are you a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) or want to become one?

 

What is an RBT?

 

Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT) are therapists working one-on-one with children diagnosed on the autism spectrum.  As a Behavior Therapist/RBT you will implement an ABA treatment plan designed and guided by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). As an RBT, you will help the children acquire new skills and work toward the goals of building communication, social interactions, problem-solving and adaptive living skills.

 

Becoming an RBT

 

Does the role of an RBT sound like something you want to take on, but you’re concerned you don’t have the right qualifications?

 

We provide complimentary on-the-job training for our ABA therapists to become licensed RBTs. The 40-hour course, RBT® Competency Assessment and RBT® exam – which FAC pays for! – can all be completed in a matter of five weeks or less.
