Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) at Pennsylvania Autism Action Center
Started as an intern/volunteer by assisting with chores and office duties as well as being a peer model for the clients. As an RBT I work directly with the clients one on one or in small groups to work on social skills, life skills, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, and general developmental skills. At the center I encountered children from 6 months to 23 years old. I also was in charge of the summer "camp" to workk on social skills and normalize the clients to all different types of environments from pools to theatres to zoos.
