This position requires working in homes, schools, and communities with children with Autism and/or Mental Health diagnoses. Position is available full time or part time. Flexible schedule, but must be able to do some late afternoon/early evening hours.
The Behavioral Specialist Consultant (BSC), in collaboration with other members of the treatment team, designs and directs the implementation of a behavior modification intervention plan which is individualized to each child or adolescent and to family needs. The Behavioral Specialist Consultant identifies behavioral goals and intervention techniques, and recommends non-aversive behavioral change methods. While maintaining some direct contact with child and family, the Behavior Specialist Consultant primarily provides assessment such as program design and monitoring rather than direct therapy. The Behavioral Specialist Consultant is expected to participate in Inter-Agency Service Planning Team (ISPT) meetings. When questions or conflict around behavioral paradigms arise in other systems, such as school or other community, the BSC may participate as a consultant in special child-centered, family focused meetings along with the therapist.
The Mobile Therapist (MT), provides intensive therapeutic services to a child and family in settings other than a provider agency or office. The primary setting for services is expected to be the child's home. Other potential settings for the mobile therapist's services include the school, the church, the community center, a neighbor's or extended family member's home, and other community settings as appropriate. Services provided by a mobile therapist vary according to the individualized needs of a child and family. The MT will also provide (A&A) Assessment and Assistance for incoming TSS.
