7 Reasons Why being an RBT is the Coolest Job Ever!
Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) are the foundation of any ABA program for a child with autism. They implement behavior plans (most of the time this looks like play) and work directly with children on specific goals, either at home or in a clinic setting.
RBTs have fun – they get to bond, play, and form relationships with neurodiverse and enthusiastic kids! At the same time, they are making a huge difference in these kids’ and their families’ lives.
Below are 7 reasons why we think being an RBT is the coolest job ever:
1. Having fun is part of the job description
Not your typical 9-5 sitting at a desk. The best RBTs are those who make sessions fun and active!
2. No prior ABA experience needed
PAID 40-Hour RBT training and certification
3. You don’t need a college degree
Just need a high school diploma
4. No day is the same
Each child has their own treatment plan unique to them, and every day is a little bit different than the last – even with the same child
5. Chance to collaborate with others
You will be on a team with other RBTs and a BCBA. Collaboration with your team happens all the time!
6. See the progress
You can see and measure the impact your work has on the kids you are working with
7. You are making a difference
Small wins are big celebrations. You have direct impact on the child and their family
