RBTs in Public Schools

RBTs in Public Schools

Beginning July 1, 2022, Registered Behavior Technicians should be allowed to provide Applied Behavior Analysis services for students in Florida’s Public Schools. The new law HB 255 added RBTs in the definition of “Private Instructional Personnel”. But, there have been problems with the implementation of this law. FABA will work with legislators to seek revisions to language in the bill that restricts RBTs who are not employed by Medicaid Providers. FABA will also work with the Department of Education to address other problems with RBT access.

Is there a more depth explanation of this Rule? I’m hearing some schools say that the RBT can come only for certain periods others are saying that they still can’t come in unless they are approved by the county first as independent vendors and even then they’re going to be restricted on which classes that can join.
