Are you interested in being a registered behavior technician (RBT) in a school-based setting? Before you start the school year, you might be curious to learn more about a day in the life of a behavior technician in a school setting.
To help prepare you, Pediatric Therapeutic Services (PTS) put together this overview of what you can expect. Read through it and then apply to work alongside us as a school-based RBT!
What Does a School-Based Behavior Technician Do?
School-based RBTs use a number of behavior interventions and techniques to support students’ whole education. You may assist students’ development of social skills, implement academic interventions, or collaborate with other therapists, teachers, parents, and administrators.
When you work alongside PTS, we’ll place you in one of our partnering districts. We have an ever-growing list of partnering schools with whom we’ve established strong relationships. That means we can continue to support you in the school environment and facilitate communications on your behalf.
What Can I Expect in the School Setting?
Now that you’ve applied to work alongside PTS and have received your school placement, it’s time to head to class! What can you expect on a day-to-day basis as a behavior technician in a school setting?
Here are some of the top skills required of the RBTs who work alongside us in schools:
At PTS, we take a Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) approach to interventions, which ensures that the right students get on the caseload. Our MTSS model is divided into three tiers of academic, behavioral, and social-emotional supports.
Working in the classroom setting as an RBT gives you the opportunity to work directly with students and implement the personalized recommendation and interventions. To ensure your students have the supports they need, you can collaborate with other therapists, teachers, parents, and administrators.
One of the many benefits of engaging with PTS is our network of therapists and dedication to collaborative learning. When in the classroom, you may work directly with Board Certified Behavior Analysts to ensure that the correct interventions are implemented throughout the school day.
