A Behavior Technician at MeBe works directly with their assigned clients providing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy either at their client’s home or at one of MeBe’s many Learning Centers. Depending on their schedules, Behavior Technicians work with about 2 to 3 clients per day, for about 2 to 3 hours with each client.
