My Job as a Behavior Therapist

“Being a Registered Behavior Therapist is a uniquely rewarding experience. I communicate with parents and guardians, run programs, implement behavior plans, and help the child with daily activities. I also observe and take notes to update caregivers on the child’s progress on programs and any new behaviors I’ve noticed. My communication log notes describe the day’s activities for healthcare providers and measure outcomes.”
