Earn Recognition, Move Up in the World
At LEARN, we value growth and learning not only within our clients but also within ourselves. That’s why we offer a path for behavior technicians (BTs) to advance and grow in their careers—and, get raises along the way.
Once you have experience as a BT, you have the opportunity to move into an advanced technician position and challenge yourself with more difficult cases, or take on a lead or managing technician role—and develop your leadership skills. Plus, if you dig helping kids with autism, you can take advantage of one of our many discounted tuition programs to earn a master’s degree in applied behavior analysis (ABA)—and become a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA).
The sky is the limit.
Is a Behavior Technician Job Right for You?
We’re excited and honored to share why this job might be the perfect opportunity for you.
- For starters, you get to PLAY. You’ll work one-on-one with children with autism using a form of therapy, known as applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy, to help children learn an abundance of skills that set them up for success in school and life.
- You will experience GROWTH. Not only will you learn about ABA and how it will help you throughout your career and life, but you’ll also learn how to adapt to challenges, remain calm under pressure, demonstrate empathy and patience towards others, and build resilience.
- Perhaps the best of all, you will feel FULFILLED. No two days will be alike, and some days might be more challenging than others, but you will gain a great sense of accomplishment about the incredible work you do for your clients and families.
You may choose a career in ABA or go on to work in another field, but no matter where you land, the skills you learn in this role will serve as building blocks for you both personally and professionally.LEARN MORE
