Behavior Technicians are an integral part of the ABN therapy team.  As a Behavior Technician, you will be a teacher to children with autism spectrum disorders.  You will help the child learn in his or her home environment and in the community.  You will receive paid training in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) in order to be an effective therapist and will receive on-going supervision.  If you have an interest in working with children, have a high energy level, and would like to enrich the lives of those affected by autism – a Behavior Technician position is one to consider! 

Requirements for a Behavior Technician position:

  • Minimum of a 6 month commitment.

  • Have a vehicle to travel to the home(s) of your client(s).  It is not always possible for you to be assigned to a client close to your home; you may have to travel over 15 miles to meet with your client.

  • Wage rate is based on experience and current level of education.

  • Travel allowance provided for you to drive to the client’s home.

  • 2 to 3 hour shifts, with a minimum of 2 shifts per week with a client, more typically 3 hour shifts.

  • Shifts occur throughout the day, but the highest need is for late afternoon hours (3:30-6:30) and on weekends during the school year.

Behavioral Treatment Therapist

Behavioral Treatment Therapists are the team leaders for the children with whom they work.  Behavioral Treatment Therapists develop the treatment plans, instructions procedures, and behavior intervention plans for their clients.  They train the Behavior Technicians to deliver ABA therapy and behavior plans.  Behavioral Treatment Therapists work closely with the BCBA/Psychologist to ensure that high-quality, data-based ABA services are implemented for each client.  If you have experience in ABA and are interested in a meaningful career, a Behavioral Treatment Therapist position may be a good fit for you!

Requirements for a Behavioral Treatment Therapist position:

  • Minimum of a 12 month commitment.

  • Bachelor’s degree in a human services field.

    • Education in ABA is preferred, but not required.

  • Wages are based on your experience and level of education.

  • Working hours are flexible.

  • Part-time and full-time positions are available.

  • Must have a vehicle and be willing to travel to the homes of your client(s).

  • Travel allowance provided.
