A Typical Day For An ABA Therapist: Applied Behavior Analysis

A Typical Day For An ABA Therapist: Applied Behavior Analysis


– I’m Joe Carter, Executive Director of Staff Management at Brett
DiNovi and Associates. Today, we’re gonna talk a little bit about how staffing goes down. So most people think
that it might be a quick text message that says hey, do you want this case, it’s not really that easy. Actually, I can’t take all
the credit for the staffing. I think this guy over here probably plays a big part in my day
to day, it’s the real MVP. Welcome to my little laboratory here. Alright so I have four
different computer screens here for a reason, I mean, it’s
pretty much a whole different department just on my desk here. So, you know, when it comes
to staffing there’s a lot of variables that come into play. You know, the age of
the learner, you know, some people might work
better with younger learners, some people might work
better with older learners. The behaviors of the learner,
you know, somebody might have an easier time working
with severe behavior and other people might have
an easier time working on you know, daily living skills
like, you know, washing your hands and brushing your
teeth and things like that. So, let’s dive right into it. So, I’m gonna show you
guys my staffing map, it’s pretty self explanatory here. So, this is a map of New
Jersey, everybody on this map is an employee, if you are a
red balloon here and if it’s a client than it’s one of
these pizza slices here. So as you can a lot of
our folks are in or around Camden or Burlington Counties. ♪ I’m not rich but I look
live like a millionaire ♪ ♪ You know I live like a millionaire ♪ ♪ Millionaires don’t respect nothing ♪ ♪ You know I live like
I ain’t got to care ♪ ♪ Lose one, get another ♪ ♪ In the world but I do ♪ ♪ I care about me and you ♪
