Supervisors at Think have the BCBA qualification and are the most experienced in ABA interventions and in dealing with children with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental delays.  Our Supervisors are responsible for creating and overseeing all of our programs.

Lead Therapists at Think have more experience implementing programs. Our leads are responsible for working directly with children and providing programmatic feedback to supervisors and therefore have more contribution to the development of the program.

Registered Behavior Technicians at Think implement teaching programs created by our BCBAs and record the data in each session which is monitored closely by our BCBA. Our Behavior Technicians all have at least Bachelor degrees, some have Masters degrees, and most are working toward their BCBA or BCaBA qualification. They have all completed our in house training program.
