One of the primary credentials in the field of applied behavior analysis (ABA) is called the Registered Behavior Technician. This credential was developed by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board. As a registered behavior technician (also known as an RBT), the individual must understand and know how to implement all items on the RBT Task List.
In our last post, RBT Study Topics: Documentation and Reporting (Part 1 of 2), we covered the first two items on the RBT Task List in the documentation and reporting category. These two items were:
E-01 Report other variables that might affect the client (e.g., illness, relocation, medication).
E-02 Generate objective session notes by describing what occurred during sessions.
To continue discussing the Documentation and Reporting skills identified for RBTs, this article will be covering the following items:
E-03 Effectively communicate with supervisor.
E-04 Comply with applicable legal, regulatory and workplace reporting requirements (e.g., mandatory abuse and neglect reporting).
E-05 Comply with applicable legal, regulatory and workplace requirements for data collection, storage and transportation.
