An RBT requires clinical assistance for one of her clients. What would be the most effective way to obtain clinical input?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Although it may be tempting to raise questions online in the hopes of receiving more fast responses, the best way to get help on a case is to ask that client's BCBA for advice. The BCBA in charge of that case will be better knowledgeable about the person's specific needs and procedures.

Which of the following factors should be included in the session notes while conducting a session?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Changes in the client's life that may have an impact on his or her performance should be communicated to the BCBA and documented in the client's session notes. It is not necessary to mention variables that occur frequently.

What should an RBT do if he or she is suffering from anxiety or depression to the degree where these diagnoses are affecting their behavior-analytic work?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Any diseases that may have a detrimental influence on behavior-analytic services must be notified to the BACB within 30 days. It is also suggested that behavior-analytic services be put on hold until the hindering factors are resolved.

Who is required by law to report suspected abuse or neglect to the appropriate authorities?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Law requires mandated reporters to report any suspected abuse or neglect. Failure to report could result in hefty fines or even imprisonment.

The behavior intervention approach for a client is mainly reliant on the client's favourite tangible: the tablet. A therapist notes that the tablet no longer has reinforcing features after the client stops engaging in required behaviors to access the tablet after a week. What should the RBT do?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Concerns should be directed to the client's BCBA first. The BCBA has received the necessary training to determine the most effective and efficient solution to this situation. Unless the BCBA has failed to handle the matter in a timely manner, the BCBA's supervisor should be called.

Who should be informed if a client feels ill during a session?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
If a client becomes ill during a session, the BCBA should be notified so that he or she can make a note in the client's file and assist in determining whether the sessions should be canceled and rescheduled.

What document should the RBT fill out if a client is playing and is accidently wounded, resulting in skin breaking?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
An incident report must be submitted whenever a client or staff member is hurt while receiving services. They usually entail gathering information on the client, the scene of the incident, identifying witnesses, and determining what can be done to avoid the issue from happening again.

In the playroom, an RBT is interacting with a client. A sharing program is part of one of the client's programs. The RBT asks for the client's toy one day. The client gives the toy back to the RBT. However, the client then tries to reclaim the toy and becomes aggressive. The RBT attempted to stop the client's hostility during this time, but he accidentally scratched the client's arm, causing the client to bleed. What should the RBT do in this case?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
An incident report must be submitted whenever a client or staff member is hurt while receiving services. Even if he was the one who mistakenly hurt the customer, the RBT must be truthful. In order to help avoid the issue from recurring, the BCBA must be aware of the facts.

To register a report of abuse or neglect, mandated reporters must have _________.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Mandatory reporting are common among ABA therapists. Only reasonable suspicion is required to file a report. You are not required to provide proof, evidence, or conduct your own inquiry. Following your report, the entity to which you reported will undertake its own investigation.

Which of the following items should a client's BCBA be informed about?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
All of these alternatives should be reported to a BCBA since the BCBA may need to include these factors in the client's data and, if necessary, help the client prepare for these life transitions.

Choose the most professional language from the alternatives available.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Wording (or rewording) phrases into proper, non-offensive, non-subjective assertions is common in professional language. The word "chaos" has a negative connotation and has no clinical significance. On the other hand, overstimulating is more clinically relevant and does not carry the same negative connotation. "I can't get anything out of her," for example, throws the blame on the client, while "It's a massive waste of time" is not helpful.

Which of the following benefits of documentation is not true?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
ABA is unusual in that we keep track of our interventions to ensure that they are carried out correctly (i.e., with integrity) and that we have objective evidence to back up our treatment that can be shared with team members and clients' families. In ABA, subjective judgements are discouraged.
