All of our service providers are behavioral techs, registered behavioral therapists (RBT) or providers with higher degrees such as a BCaBA, BCBA or certified teacher. Behavioral techs are typically new to the clinic setting, but have at least 3 years of childcare experience, including situational experience dealing with challenging behaviors, children on the spectrum, and/or language development. All behavioral techs are required to go through the training to become an RBT within 90 days of starting at Growing Together, and are provided extensive training both in small group and direct supervision.
All staff at Growing Together are provided direct supervision from a BCBA or BCaBA, as well as individual and group training each month. Continuing education and skill development is required of all therapists and teachers.
