Applied Behavior Analysis for Practitioners
The number of children and adults needing behavioral health services is increasing despite a shortage of Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) to provide care services. In Nevada, for example, there were fewer than 250 RBTs to treat the more than 7,000 children suffering from autism statewide as recently as February 2016.
