If you had one piece of advice for individuals looking to get into this field, what would it be?

Practice patience and never stop learning.

Loni, RBT - Center Admin

Take one day at a time and trust yourself as a professional to give the utmost service and care for your students

Kashua, CF-SLP

Gain experience in multiple settings. See clients in home and school, or in clinic and then in their personal environment. Generalization of therapy practices has been the most successful in terms of outcomes, in my experience.

Kenan, Area Coordinator

I would tell someone looking to get into the field of ABA to keep an open mind and an open heart. This job can be difficult at times, but it is one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have.

Abby, RBT

Work hard and its possible. Its a great profession with a lot of flexibility.

Erin, Occupational Therapist

It can be very challenging sometimes but it's so rewarding!

Kayla, RBT

Be open to different experiences. I started as a RBT and gained many skills from dealing with clients at different skill levels, family environments, and locations. This helped me become more adaptable as a COTA/L in the school environment.

Ehren, COTA/L

If you're looking into joining this field I implore you to learn more about Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Pay attention to how ABA started and what changes have been made to improve our practice.

Allye, RBT 

You need to be flexible, have patience and understanding, and not sweat the small stuff.

Providing ABA services is not always easy but it can be incredibly rewarding. Advocate for yourself and for your clients to be able to do the same!

Ford, BCBA

Juliana, BSS

My advice would be to be patient, adaptable, and flexible. Also, to focus on the "little wins" because they matter just as much as the "big" behavioral wins.

Maria, RBT

Set boundaries early and know your limits

Andrea, BCaBA

Enter with a humble, compassionate heart and a drive to learn everything possible to serve kids and families well. You are not just a PT (or other discipline), you are an advocate for kids.

Mercy, Physical Therapist

Be flexible, willing to listen and learn from others, and do not take maladaptive behaviors from your client, personally. When you start taking it personal, it's time for you to move on. Also, the goal is for your client to gain independence from...

Being an SLP provides many opportunities for flexible hours and settings. Invo provides excellent training and support from clinical managers if you're transitioning from adults/geriatrics.

Engage in self care! Self care isn't selfish; it allows us to be better mental health counselors.

Stephanie, IMPACT Counselor

Be aware that School locations for Related Services are different from regular medical, home health, or outpatient work models and also varies between different states so DO check with your license and consider the various options with INVO.
