The Essential Need for RBT's in Schools
September 13, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. EST
Although many clinical practices are requiring the Registered Behavioral Technician (RBT) credential, it is still uncommon to see RBT's working in the schools. Teachers and paraprofessionals can benefit from the RBT credential to give them the basic ABA knowledge that they need to manage behavior, develop IEP goals, build skills in students, and further their own careers. Select schools in the U.S. are embracing the RBT credential and working to provide the training and supervision for their teachers and paraprofessionals. Schools face certain barriers to doing this such as professional development time (particularly for paraprofessionals), cost, and buy-in from district leadership.
Join us for a unique Q & A with Special Guest Speakers Kathleen Quaglino, Assistant Director of Special Education-ASD & Transition Services Stamford Public Schools (CT) and Xiomara Lee, LCSW, BCBA, RYT, Denver Public Schools (CO). Discover their data and procedures for RBTs, how they plan to utilize RBTs with students, and how they plan to expand opportunities for staff to get the credential.Register
