Behavior Technicians, under the supervision of a BCBA, use Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy to encourage positive behaviors and discourage negative behaviors, as well as to improve a variety of skills for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The child's progress is then tracked and measured.

ABA therapy is also used to increase language, communication skills, attention, focus, social skills, memory, and academics. ABA techniques focus on positive reinforcement; when a positive behavior is followed by something that is valued to the child, such as "a reward", that behavior is more likely to occur in the future.

ABA Behavior Technician Responsibilities:
  • Behavioral Technician will work mostly in the home (with a potential of working in a nearby clinic center) with children on the Autism Spectrum to provide ABA therapy.
  • Responsible for recording and collecting data on an iPad on the progress and abilities of the child.

  • Minimum of High School Diploma.
  • Ability to follow written instructions
  • Proficient use of computers and/or computer software programs
  • Strong communication skills
  • Ability to make quick decisions and maintain composure in a fast paced work environment
  • Must be able to communicate expressively and receptively in order to follow through with individualized behavior plan, emergency procedures, and report on activities.
