Behavior Technicians

What is a Behavior Technician?

A paraprofessional certified in behavior analysis. BTs assist in delivering behavior-analytic services and practice under the direction and close supervision of a BT Supervisor and/or a BT Requirements Coordinator, who are responsible for all work BTs perform. A BT facilitates a friendly learning environment to teach positive skills and reduce challenging behaviors.
