Who Can Practice ABA?
Practitioners of behavior analysis provide services consistent with the dimensions of ABA. Common services may include, but are not limited to, conducting behavioral assessments, analyzing data, writing and revising behavior-analytic treatment plans, training others to implement components of treatment plans, and overseeing the implementation of treatment plans. BACB Practitioners are qualified to provide services to clients with a variety of needs, including improvements in organizational functioning (e.g. staff performance, management, etc.), skill deficits (e.g. communication, adaptive behavior), and problem behavior (e.g. aggression, self-injurious behavior), among others.

A Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) is a paraprofessional who practices under the close, ongoing supervision of a BCBA or BCaBA. The RBT is primarily responsible for the direct implementation of behavior-analytic services. The RBT does not design interventions or assessment plans. It is the responsibility of the RBT supervisor to determine which tasks an RBT may perform as a function of his or her training, experience, and competence. The supervisor is responsible for the work performed by the RBT on the cases they are overseeing. Meet Integrated Behavior Solutions’ RBTs!
