What is a Behavior Interventionist?

A behavior interventionist is a direct service technician who works directly with children (under the supervision of a licensed behavior analyst) in need of behavior intervention. A behavior interventionist will follow a structured treatment plan written by a licensed behavior analyst with the objective of improving the socially significant behavior of the child. Behavior interventions are generally recommended by the child’s pediatrician, psychologist, or psychiatrist directly to Play Works Children’s Therapies.
