RBT Turnover Solution. RBT LIFELINE. BCBA Volunteers Needed.
Who’s interested in volunteering their time if we create an International hotline for RBTs and BTs?
While there are systemic problems the industry needs to address – HR practices, Lack of training, lack of quality supervision, lack of systematic development programs for RBTs to add to the 40 hours, etc. and the bigger problem of the low bar for admitting new entrants into our field (high school degree and 40 hours) – there are things that we can put in place immediately to help address the quality issue.
If we created a hotline supported by a team of volunteer BCBAs with experience working in different settings with different populations (i.e. diversity) and made this hotline/lifeline available to RBTs and BTs, at least we can start to address the quality issue.
While I do realize that we have to be careful about not violating the Ethics Code, the benefit of being able to provide support collectively will show RBTs that we care about them. That their experience with unethical business practices doesn’t mean that BCBAs agree with the business practices. In fact, most BCBAs I know vehemently disagree with these policies but they’re not in a position to do anything.
I need to talk to my tech team to discuss how to implement such a system but in order for this to work, we need volunteers.
