The specific role of the Behavior Interventionist is to provide in-home behavioral intervention to children with autism and their families. Behavior Interventionists provide 1:1 behavior intervention to children and report directly to their Program Supervisor. Behavior Interventionists are responsible for implementing the specific ABA programs as written by the Program Supervisor.
AST utilizes multiple ABA-based teaching strategies such as Discrete Trial Training, PRT, PECS and other play-based ABA techniques. Parents are required to participate in intervention sessions and will be directly trained by therapists and supervisors in techniques and specifics related to their child’s program. Behavioral Therapists are required to collect data during every session.
