It is important to note that RBTs/ ABA therapists working in a centre-based environment report greater job-satisfaction due to increased supervision by the consultant BCBA, lower burn-out rates, stronger peer-to-peer working relationships, increased knowledge from working in a multidisciplinary setting, as a direct result of receiving ongoing input from SLT/PROMR/OT teams. 

Working alongside a diagnostic setting also provides therapy teams with a wider understanding of the positive implications of ABA/ EIBI on the longer-term outcomes for the children they treat. These include improved scores on the CARS-II, Vineland, and other attainment and cognitive assessments, which are typically performed by psychiatrists, educational psychologists and neurodevelopmental paediatricians.
