The RBT Pipeline program that we built for an agency in PA has done so well that we are generating excess candidates. We are looking to connect with ABA organizations with a primary mission of helping improve lives that employ (1) ethical hiring practices, (2) exceptional clinical practices, (3) employee recognition and retention programs, and (4) corporate culture that embodies collaboration and facilitates loyalty.
If your agency meets the picture of an Ethical ABA Organization, please send an email to kchung@special-learning so that we can schedule a screening call.
(1) Reasonable hourly rate
(2) Guaranteed hours
(3) Paid training and structured onboarding (including shadowing opportunities)
(4) Quality supervision (more than 5% minimum required by the BACB)
(5) Ongoing professional development opportunities (even for BTs and RBTs)
(6) Benefits program
(7) PTO (vacations and holidays)
(8) Paid driving time
(9) Mileage reimbursement
(10) Differentiated compensation program (calibrated for educational background, experience, and level of expertise)

Being an RBT for me was extremely fun because where were you going to find a place where you can be completely silly without having to worry what people thought about you? This was the only job that made me feel like I could make a dramatic difference while being myself.

I also liked to be surrounded by people that had the same goals of wanting to help kids and the teamwork made the job much easier and more enjoyable.

Change and progress was the ultimate goal for our kiddos. The early intervention program was seriously only a miracle because I saw changes in the kiddos that from day one, you wouldn’t even recognize who they were.

Changes from being able to utter 3-4 words where they can only make a syllable from when they started, the behavior decreases in which kiddo that used to engage in 30-40 0 self-harm to only half, learning how to wait during games, table work where they use to swipe and drop to the floor if they had to.

My favorite was when the parents would tell us what amazing progress they were making at home. I used to tear up and felt for these parents so much because it was already difficult for them and now, they can trust and rely on ABA and the therapists knowing their goal was ours.
