ABA Therapist was asked...April 25, 2017

They asked about my previous experience. But that doesn't matter. They basically hire anyone.

4 Answers

CBI provides a comprehensive training program at hire. Each RBT starts within $1-$2 starting rate range as everything going forward is competency based. If you excel in training and have a positive attitude your pay reflects this quickly. CBI provides the support for you to grow and sets you up for success. Less


I've never heard of anyone gaining higher pay based on competency.

What would you do if a child was throwing a tantrum but was fine earlier?

3 Answers

Depending on the age of the child. Under 3 remove them from the situation until they calm down. Reasoning with a child under 3 normally will not work, they do not have that ability to understand reasoning. Over 3 remove them and after they calm down, then talk to them about this behavior and what you are expecting from them. Do not ever give in and give them what is causing the tantrum. You will lose every time there after. Less

depending on the age of the child remove them from the situation and let them calm down then talk to them if verbal then let them know that if they can show they can get through unpreferred activity they can get something they want, if not remove them from the situation and let them calm down and then show them several items and wait for them to express interest through touching it then resume activity while placing preferred it out of reach and let them know that when activity is done they can get preferred item Less

I'd remove them from the situation and let them calm down then I would ask what's wrong. If it's an activity they don't want to do, I would use something that interests them as a motivator to get them to follow rules. If it's a disagreemtn between kids I would try to settle the disagreement in a way that's fair to all kids involved Less

How do you feel about the salary since it is lower that what a public school can offer?

2 Answers

I was willing to accept the lower salary because of the convenience of the location of the school and the hours since I have children of my own and I am really looking forward to having the same vacation weeks (Thanksgiving, Winter, February, and April). I am also happy that NLG is going to support me as I accrue my supervision hours required for my BCBA requirements. Less

If you want a serious career in ABA DO NOT WORK AT NASHOBA. so many Ethical violations. They hire kids just out of college that dont know better, don't be fooled. BACB TAKE NOTICE!!!!! Less

I'd try several things: remove the distraction if possible for example a toy that's distracting them or move into a place without the distraction. I would also stop the lesson and find out what is on the students' mind if redirection didn't work Less
