Job Summary

Behavior Technicians and/or Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) play a critical role in the field of applied behavior analysis (ABA). Their primary responsibility is to work with individuals who have behavior challenges or developmental disabilities, such as autism spectrum disorder under the direct supervision of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.


  • Implementing Behavior Plans: Behavior technicians follow behavior intervention plans created by Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) or other qualified professionals. These plans are designed to address specific behavioral goals and objectives.
  • Direct Client Interaction: They work directly with clients, often on a one-on-one basis, to implement behavior modification strategies. This may involve teaching new skills, reinforcing positive behaviors, and reducing or eliminating challenging behaviors.
  • Data Collection: Behavior technicians are responsible for collecting accurate and detailed data on the individual’s behavior. This data helps in tracking progress, identifying patterns, and adjusting intervention strategies as needed.
  • Collaborating with Other Professionals: They collaborate with other members of the treatment team, including BCBAs, speech therapists, occupational therapists, and teachers. This interdisciplinary approach ensures a comprehensive and coordinated intervention plan.
  • Training and Support: Behavior technicians may provide training and support to parents, caregivers, or other individuals involved in the individual’s life. This helps to generalize learned skills and behaviors across different settings.
  • Maintaining Professionalism: Behavior technicians adhere to ethical standards and maintain a professional demeanor. They must establish a positive and trusting relationship with their clients while respecting confidentiality and privacy.
  • Problem-Solving: As challenges arise, behavior technicians use their knowledge of behavior analysis to problem-solve and adjust intervention strategies accordingly. Flexibility and adaptability are key traits in this role.
  • Documentation: Accurate and timely documentation of sessions, progress, and any changes in behavior is a crucial part of the job. This documentation helps in evaluating the effectiveness of interventions and communicating with other team members.
  • Continuous Learning: Staying up-to-date with the latest research and advancements in the field of behavior analysis is essential for behavior technicians. Continuous learning ensures that they are using evidence-based practices in their work.
