The Behavior Technician position is the perfect fit for a College/University Student, Teacher, Paraprofessional, Caregiver, or Healthcare Professional looking for an exciting part-time career opportunity. This position is also a great fit for candidates with experience or interest in working with children with special needs or autism. Current Behavioral Interventionists, ABA Therapists or ABA Technicians are encouraged to apply.
Positions are available on a part-time basis with the possibility of moving from part-time to full-time (32 hr/wk). Full-time technicians may be eligible for benefits including medical, dental, vision and life.
Behavior Technicians, under the supervision of a clinician, use Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy to encourage positive behaviors and discourage negative behaviors, as well as to improve a variety of skills for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The child’s progress is then tracked and measured. ABA therapy is also used to increase language, communication skills, attention, focus, social skills, memory, and academics. ABA techniques focus on positive reinforcement; when a positive behavior is followed by something that is valued to the child, such as “a reward”, that behavior is more likely to occur in the future.
ABA Behavior Technician Responsibilities:
1. Behavioral Technician will work mostly in the home (with a potential of working in a nearby clinic center) with children on the Autism Spectrum to provide ABA therapy.
2. Responsible for recording and collecting data on an iPad on the progress and abilities of the child.
3. Behavior Technician will be supervised/trained weekly by a Behavior Consultant (BC) and must be ready to provide feedback to the BC on current progress and implement programs and recommendations given by the BC.Company Description
