Training and Development
We offer opportunities for you to grow with us!
At ABS, training doesn’t stop after the first week. We believe that ongoing staff training is a must to ensure the highest quality of care for our clients. In person, weekly and biweekly meetings are held to discuss a variety of topics. Some topics include Behavior Support Plans, Skill Acquisition Targets, Supervision Requirements, Ethics, Parent Training, Toileting Skills, Feeding Skills, and more! Ongoing training is also available as supervision free of charge for those wishing to pursue their BCBA certification.
An RBT is a Registered Behavior Technician™ (RBT®). The RBT® is a paraprofessional, who practicing under close supervision of Consultants at ABS, carry out direct implementation of ABA services. To obtain the RBT® credential, the Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB) requires a 40-hour training, a competency assessment, a passed criminal background registry check, and a passed on-site exam. At ABS, all requirements from the BACB are included in training to help new team members reach their RBT® credential confidently and quickly.
For those Behavioral Interventionists looking to pursue or are actively pursuing a BCBA or BCaBA, supervision comes at no extra cost. ABS provides both Group and Individual Supervision, all based on the current schedule of the RBT looking to further their knowledge, practice, and career. Supervision is provided by a credentialed BCBA who has completed the 8 hour credit course on Supervision and follows the BCBA task list in accordance with the BACB. Ongoing auditing of forms and support is also carefully managed to ensure all appropriate paperwork is correctly completed by the Supervisee, for when they need to submit their information to the BACB.
