Continuum Behavioral Health

Behavior Technician

April 2019 • Egg Harbor Township, NJ

What I liked

The opportunity to teach special needs children the skills needed to live functional, healthy lives! Also, this job offers supervision hours by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), useful for Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Master's programs.

What I wish was different

I wish there I had some more training, or time with other employees before beginning services with my first client.


Study the material you may have forgotten from previous psychology/educational/child dev classes. This job is an IN-HOME THERAPY service, and the client's family can hear and sometimes see your session, which is intimidating when you've just learned how to do the job. Also, it was nerve-wracking to admit to parents you've only just began, and that your about to spend two hours with their child prompting and recording specific behaviors!!
