One of the things Behavior Technicians tend to look for when evaluating different employers is training and professional development. This is an area where AZA United goes above and beyond. To begin, every new Behavior Technician spends 2 weeks completing a hands-on paid training program at out East Valley Center, which is our model for ABA excellence, and we want every ABA Therapist to have the opportunity to learn in that environment, surrounded by peers and seasoned BCBAs. All Behavior Technicians participate in a monthly virtual professional development seminar hosted by our senior ABA staff members, and all of that is paid time for you as well. Ultimately, the feedback we most consistently receive from our Behavior Technicians is that they feel supported and mentored by our senior staff, which comes in part from monthly supervision and oversight sessions with our BCBAs as well as hands-on training for each new client.
The role of Behavior Technician is an excellent way to launch or expand your career in the field of autism treatment. If you don’t already have it, our team will provide all the training and supervision you need to become nationally certified as a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). If you want to stay in the field of ABA therapy long-term, we offer an in-house mentoring program and career path to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).
If you plan to explore other autism treatment fields in the future, this experience will serve you well in many roles including speech therapist, psychologist, special education teacher, etc. We have many other clinical services and professionals at AZA United that collaborate with our ABA team to provide interdisciplinary care for families, so everyone is always learning and improving treatment quality for the kids. Most of all, we make sure ABA therapy is always tons of fun for kids and staff, because there’s nothing more rewarding than doing something you love!
