Stella Nanes started this petition to Florida State Senator-District 5 Senator Rob Bradley and

Senate Bill 1108, written in 2013, defines what types of certified therapists can provide services in the school setting. Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) were not in existence at that time and the law has yet to be amended. RBTs are state and board certified and implement the life altering and prescribed behavioral services to many children, including those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Many Florida school districts, including our own Clay County School District, have denied access to RBTs because they are not specifically identified on the Senate Bill. There are, however, many other school districts within our state that go over and beyond and do RBTs in the classroom. 

Please join me in gathering support for this cause and help our children receive the prescribed services, in a school setting, which will allow access to the curriculum.
