    The Great Resignation & Its Impact On The ABA Field | With Leadership Expert Tim Schneider #59

    The Great Resignation & Its Impact On The ABA Field | With Leadership Expert Tim Schneider #59

    In this episode, we talk with leadership expert and award-winning author, Tim Schenider, about ‘the great resignation’ and its impact on the world of Applied Behavior Analysis (or ABA therapy) and other autism services. 


    Applied Behavior Analysis is the most commonly prescribed treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder. ABA helps children with autism learn new skills - those might include communication skills, daily living skills, social skills, and many more. ABA is not a one size fits all treatment. Each program is specially designed to suit the needs of the individual child. Each child has a team of a single Behavior Analyst and often multiple Behavior Technicians that provide the day-to-day & one-on-one therapy.  The job of the behavior technician can be incredibly rewarding but it can also pose a lot of challenges. This is the position that we see has the highest turnover rate and is the most impacted by the ‘great resignation’. Each time a behavior technician leaves a child’s case, the child faces the possibility of losing valuable weekly prescribed hours of their ABA therapy program. 


    So, what are ABA organizations doing? What can parents do if they find they are losing their Behavior Technicians? Download the podcast today to learn more!
