Director, Program Operations

ABA Therapy is a growing team of people expanding to meet the needs of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder in the southern Mississippi area. The program director works closely with our other Board Certified Behavior Analysts and Registered Behavior Therapists (RBT) to provide a growing variety of services in an expanding number of locations.

 

Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA)

The BCBA will be responsible for conducting the initial evaluation/assessment, program development, initial parent training, and overseeing the program for each child. This includes periodic direct supervision of Implementers during sessions and parent training.  A BCBA is a master’s level clinician who has undergone

ABA course work, on-site practice, and supervision, and has passed the Behavior Analyst Certification Board exam and is licensed by the State of Mississippi to provide Applied Behavior Analysis Services.

 

Registered Behavior Technician (RBT)

The RBTs are responsible for the implementation of the program. They will be working one on one with the child. RBTs have at least a Bachelor’s in Psychology or a related field and have received formal training in ABA through MCARDD. Implementers also receive intensive training by a BCBA and BCaBAs prior to working with any child, and continuous supervision once assigned to a child.
