What is it like to be a Pediatric Behavioral Therapist? Meet Melissa, MA, and learn why she loves being a BT at Achieve Beyond!

Presented By: Melissa Renga, MA, - Quality Assurance Specialist & RBT


Hi. My name is Melissa. I’m an ABA candidate here at Achieve Beyond. I’ve worked here since 2016 as a behaviour therapist. Now I’m a registered behaviour technician. In that time I graduated with my undergrad in psychology, and I got my Master’s in clinical psychology. I’ve worked with a little kiddo who is aged four, and I have two kiddos that I’ve been working with for a while now who are both 17. They’re getting ready to go off to college.

My younger kiddos, we’ll work on matching and gross motor skills, fine motor skills, detective language, expressive language, or role-playing.

I love working in Achieve Beyond because I love the mission of helping all of our kiddos here reach beyond their current potential. Everyone is so like-minded and always willing to lend a hand, give some advice, and in any way they can, help our kiddos become as independent, and productive, and happy as possible.

I love being a BT and an RBT. I’ve gotten to know all of our families so well that I have kids that I watch them grow up. And it’s so rewarding. I wouldn’t give the experience up for anything. When I become a BCBA I plan to continue working at Achieve Beyond. I love it here. It’s a family-owned company run by BCBAs. I know everyone so well, and everyone is so welcoming, and always so willing to teach me things.

I am so thankful for my relationships that I have formed with my kiddos and their families, and offering support during difficult times, and being there for them, no matter what.

It has been a really good experience here, and I am very thankful for it.
