RBT VS BCBA: What's the Difference?

Within the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB), there are several credentials that individuals can acquire, at varying levels, in order to provide and/or supervise ABA therapy services. 

A Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) is an entry-level position within the field of behavior analysis. RBTs work in a clinical environment under the direct supervision of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) or a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) to implement ABA therapy for individuals with Autism and other developmental disabilities. A behavior technician's main duty is to implement therapy and assist with behavioral issues in a variety of settings, under the supervision of a BCBA.
