Clinique Spectrum is excited to offer the registered Behaviour Technician (RBT)™ training starting February 1, 2021!
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects communication, social skills, and behaviour. Autism affects 1 in 66 Canadian youth.
Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is an evidence-based strategy that uses the science of behaviour to teach skills and promote desired behaviour. It is often used as an intervention for children with autism.
RBT (Registered Behaviour Technician) is a credential offered by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board for individuals providing direct behaviour-analytic services to children with autism (www.bacb.com/rbt). An RBT is an integral part of the intervention team, supporting the child in home, school, and/or community environments. RBTs work under the supervision and guidance of a BCBA (Board Certified Behaviour Analyst), who provides the intervention goals and strategies.
What is included?
- The 42-hour online RBT Curriculum (Required by the BACB to become certified). This training is based on the 2nd edition RBT task list and is designed to meet the 40-hour RBT training requirement in order to become certified. This training is offered independent of the BACB.
- Learning takes place through an online platform and has been curated to provide the student with an interactive experience. This includes detailed training slides, videos, weekly quizzes and active student responding, as well as interactive discussions between the trainers (BCBA’s). Practice tests, group activities and class discussions are designed to ensure you will be prepared to complete the competency exam with your supervisor once completing the course and sit for the BACB RBT Exam.
- 320-page RBT Training Binder.
* The Competency Assessment required by the BACB to become certified is not included within the Clinique Spectrum online RBT Training. The assessment must be administered by a BCBA, following the completion of the 42-hour RBT training requirement and should be done by someone who will be directly supervising your work.
