Responsibilities of BCBA School Jobs
Behavior specialist jobs in schools help facilitate the treatment of students on a case-to-case basis. The primary responsibilities of a board-certified behavior analyst (BCBA) school job include assessing students with behavior and emotional issues and collaborating with teachers, parents and other school professionals to develop a behavior adjustment plan. Once a plan is in place, BCBAs reevaluate the program and determine if any adjustments are needed. Behavioral specialist school jobs typically operate inside the special education department of a school, and while the role and responsibilities might vary by caseload, the objective and job function remain the same.
Responsibilities of RBT School Jobs
A registered behavior technician (RBT) is a credentialed paraprofessional who works one-on-one with people receiving applied behavior analysis therapy to implement their intervention plans. A major responsibility of RBT school jobs includes working closely and collaborating with BCBAs, providing them with feedback on student behavioral changes, obstacles and achievements.
Responsibilities of ABA Jobs in Schools
Applied Behavior Analysts (ABAs) design and implement therapy programs to help treat patients with mental, social or learning disorders. Responsibilities of ABA jobs in schools might include monitoring patterns in student behavior and working with BCBAs to determine which type of treatment will best support the student.
