Direct Intervention Team
The team of staff who provide the most intensive services to our clients are our Direct Intervention Team. This team is comprised of four levels of staff, each with slightly higher amounts of training and experience. These include our entry-level staff, Behavioral Health Technicians – ABA (BHT-ABA), Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT), ABA Interns, and ABA Apprentices.
All levels of Direct Intervention Staff are well trained and intensely supported by assigned supervisors who are certified/licensed masters-level clinicians and provide ongoing support to their supervises. RBTs are those staff who study and sit for an exam to obtain an entry-level professional certification in ABA, and must renew this certification yearly.
ABA Interns are our staff who are actively pursuing their master’s degree in ABA, and are in the first half of their programs. As our ABA Interns make their way through their master’s degree program, they transition to the role of ABA Apprentice and receive more ‘BCBA – like’ experiences as they continue to serve clients directly and provide clinical assistance to our master’s level clinicians.
Master's Level Clinicians
Our Masters Level Clinicians have advanced degrees in either ABA, Psychology, Education, or a related field that included a large quantity of specific coursework in Applied Behavior Analysis. They have also been professionally supervised working in the field with clients for 1500 to 2000 hours, depending on when they came through their master’s program (requirements were recently increased). These Team Members have a nationally and internationally recognized professional certification to practice as a masters level clinician in ABA. They also have a medical license in the state of Pennsylvania called a Behavior Specialist License.
