All ABSI team members are certified as behavior technicians. ABSI will help you, step-by-step, in that process. We also require a valid driver’s license and the ability to lift 50 lbs. What else, you may ask. As an ABA behavior technician, you should also be extremely passionate about seeing others succeed.

The major benefit of becoming a Behavior Technician is that it is a great way to gain an overview of the field of Applied Behavior Analysis. It is a springboard that will help you target where you want to go in your career.
There are many factors that help people excel as a behavior technician. Aside from passion and a genuine desire to help people, some other intangible qualities include reliability, being a team player, having a positive attitude, and having the ability to build relationships with clients and their families.
Yes! Becoming a behavior technician is a great first step in a career of working with people who are neurodiverse. Just a few of the careers people can embark on are teachers, doctors, Board Certified Behavior Analysts, psychologists, occupational therapists and more.

A Behavior Technician can find themselves in a multitude of environments with their clients. One session might see you at home working on skills like pretend play. Another session could see you supporting a client at school. The next session could place you in a social skills group assisting the person you’re working with. Some sessions take place in the community and work on tolerating new environments. The goals of a client are ever changing and thus is the job of a Behavior Interventionist.

ABSI does their best to match their clients personality with that of the client’s they serve. The goal is to match both client and the Behavior Technician in a way that is mutually beneficial to both parties; building rapport between a Behavior Technician and client is key. This is why the lines of communication are always open between Behavior Technicians and their supervisors so that the best “fits” can be made for everyone.

Jobs in ABA therapy fit people who are curious, compassionate, caring, and want to help others. People in ABA jobs come from all different walks of life and career fields. Just as the people you work with are diverse, the diversity YOU bring to the job will help in the work you do with clients.
