As our Behavior Technician, you will help children with autism so they can develop the necessary skills needed to pursue their dreams. #DoWonders with us.
Every day you will provide direct therapy to a child with autism either in a one on one or group setting utilizing prescribed teaching and natural environment training. This role is performed using a science-based practice that requires proper protocols to be implemented by creating and repeating many learning opportunities, called trials, and documenting your dedicated child’s progress and responses. We will provide training so that you are equipped and empowered to help each child. This role is the first step in many career opportunities.
Depending on the client’s location, therapy will either be conducted in the child’s home or at a Centria center. Generally, this role is between the hours of 3 pm and 8 pm and part time totaling 15-25 hours per week.
To thrive, you must be reliable, have infinite patience, and maintain a positive, self-directed drive to help each child acquire new skills. Your work matters, and your direct influence and dedication will inspire each child's growth. Children can be unpredictable and potentially aggressive, so this role is not for the weak of spirit, mind, or body.
Must haves: you need to be at least 18 years of age, have a high school diploma or GED, willing to obtain CPR and First Aid certification along with a TB test if you haven't had one in the last year. Additionally, we will run a preemployment background check.
What's in it for you: In addition to the opportunity to do wonders and change the lives of children, you will receive clear feedback and have an opportunity to grow and build a clinical career with support from our world-class clinical leadership team.
