Enjoy working with kids? The behavioral technician position is as rewarding as it is fun! As a behavior technician, you will be responsible for the direct Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy of a child with developmental disabilities. While working with kids ages 2-18, you will use play to build social and leisure skills, help develop expressive communication, understanding of language, self-help skills, and decrease maladaptive behaviors.

A Behavior Treatment Technician is a paraprofessional who works one-on-one with people receiving Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy to implement their intervention plans. In this position you get to play and have fun working with kids while making a difference in their and their family's lives!

ABA therapy relies on systematic manipulations of the environment to modify behavior. Often, ABC’s of behavior are analyzed -Antecedent (the stimulus preceding the behavior), Behavior, and Consequence (the behavior’s positive or negative result)—to determine influential factors affecting behavior. As an Technician, you will be using ABA intervention strategies with students. You will witness firsthand the often dramatic difference ABA strategies can make for children with physical and intellectual disabilities.
