Registered Behavior Technician - Skyrocketing Jobs in ABA
August 23, 2022Taylor Krasnomowitz, RBT Training Coordinator
ABA therapy is a growing field!
More than 25,000+ RBT Jobs are currently listed on Indeed (8/2022) with the average pay range from $17 to $26 per hour.
What is the history of RBTs?
In 2014 the BACB created Registered Behavior Technicians. RBTs are an entry level job (no college degree required!) in ABA therapy.
What role does an RBT play in the ABA therapy Community?
RBTs play a crucial role when they are working with their BCBA and implementing the behavior plans with the clients.
The need for BCBAs is increasing which creates a need for RBTs as well. For the next 10 years, it is being anticipated that there will be roughly 15,000 job openings each year. According to Elemy, "Registered behavior technicians (RBTs) are predicted to see a 12% to 17% job growth rate in the coming years. As the need for behavioral analysts rises across the country, RBTs are in greater demand."
Median pay in May 2021 was $36,230 or $17.42 per hour
More RBTs means more help for those needing ABA therapy.
