Inaugural Behaviour Technician Induction
We are over the moon to see the Behaviour Technician role finally launch today after many months in research and development. Ioanna Konstantinidou Senior Behaviour Analyst was joined today by members of our management team today as she welcomed Green Light’s first ever Behaviour Technicians.
Beccy Melling, Lakme Lusein, Clarissa Mitchell and Charlotte Kane were successfully appointed to this new role, following a rigorous application and interview process earlier in the summer.
Behaviour Technicians will work collaboratively with people to provide tailored evidence-based support in specific areas of need, for example supporting someone to develop their self-help, social or communication skills to improve their safety, wellbeing, independence or quality of life. They will work with, and alongside our existing teams, but their work will be supervised by Board Certified Behaviour Analysts. Line management support and supervision will be provided by an experienced Registered Manager who has taken part in the behaviour technician training, so they understand the requirements and expectations of this role.
Following theoretical training, supervision and competence assessment Behaviour Technicians become eligible to sit an exam to become a Registered Behaviour Technician, an internationally recognised paraprofessional role found in behaviour analytic services worldwide.
We are excited to have reached this stage in our development and cannot wait to see Beccy, Lakme, Clarissa and Charlotte in action supporting and empowering people. We believe what they will do together will add tremendous value to what we do for and with people with learning disabilities and autism and will inspire others to follow in their footsteps.
A big thanks to Ioanna for all the work she has put into researching and the development of this specialist training.
