Description: RBT’s are in high demand to provide needed ABA services in person or virtual therapy to individuals with developmental disabilities, Unfortunately, BCBAs who train and supervise RBTs are time-challenged to assist the RBT to acquire and maintain the essential skills to be successful implementing data-based practices. In addition, RBTs working in non-clinical settings require additional support and training, as current ABA terminology and technology may not be supported in those environments. Participants will receivea study guide for the RBT exam and a detailed step-by-step curriculum download for BCBAs or RBT supervisors to use to teach required vocabulary and skills for the Competency Assessment.
Learning Objectives: The participants will be able to individualize additional instruction for the RBTs. The participants will be able to collect data and evaluate success using data-based strategies. The participants will be able to monitor the client’s progress and treatment integrity. The participants will be able to use self-management strategies. The participants will be able to use data-based decisions to determine the need for additional training and support.
Activities: The format combines lecture, video examples, small group hands on activities and guided practice.
