What is a Registered Behavior Technician™ (RBT)?

The 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 behaviour-analytic services. This includes teaching new skills, implementing behaviour reduction plans, data taking, graphing and assisting in assessments. The work can take place in clinics, community, schools, and at a client's home.

The RBT does not design intervention, behaviour reduction nor designs 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 BACB certificant supervising the RBT is responsible for the work performed by the RBT on the cases they are overseeing.
