*Position Overview*

Our RBTs work as a part of the ABA Treatment Team, providing in-home services for children with Autism and related disorders. Our RBTs receive frequent supervision and support from a supervising BCBA. They're integral to the child's progress as well as family communication with the ABA Treatment Team. The RBTs role involves *planning, collecting data*, and *treatment.*

*Planning *- RBTs are responsible for arriving at appointments with materials to keep clients engaged and stimulated for the duration of the appointment. This can include toys, books, games, arts & crafts, or other creative ideas.

* Punctuality: RBTs are expected to arrive a minimum of 5 minutes prior to the session's start time.

*Collecting Data* - RBTs need to collect data in order to monitor the progress and effectiveness of the individualized treatment plan. Regular and ongoing data collection is vital in evaluating the progress a client makes towards their goals. Critical decisions regarding the client's goals and therapy sessions are made based on this ongoing data collection. RBTs will collect their data during sessions as they implement programs developed by the supervising BCBA. This allows the ABA and administrative team to ensure the treatment is progressing and effective.
