We are not the largest, but we are one of the larger organizations in the field. What sets us apart is how well we work as a team. There truly is an open door policy at CBS. The things our team members will find so appealing about working at CBS are the flexibility of hours; the quality of our BCBA Supervision and other team supervision; training opportunities and career advancement; overall support; and the feeling that this is an open and welcoming environment.

CBS is a human services organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, adults and the families we serve. We work with children with a variety of developmental disabilities, including Autism. Our focus is to address identified developmental deficits and behavioral barriers which prevent the child from engaging in meaningful social interactions with family, peers and society. While we provide direct behavioral support to the child, we place heavy emphasis on educating the family so that they themselves may promote positive changes in their child.
