If you welcome adventure, have a curious nature and a compassionate heart, aren?t afraid to get down on the floor to collaborate with children, and long to make a meaningful difference in the lives of families living with autism ? then we?ve got a place for you. Comprehensive Autism Center (CAC) is seeking Behavior Therapists (BT) to train and become Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT) who bring equal parts compassion and clinical skills to families in Southern California.
CAC focuses on providing research-based and data-driven applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapies, programs, and services for families who have young children diagnosed with developmental delays and Autism Spectrum Disorder. CAC puts compassion into expert clinical care. We do what we do because we are passionate about making a positive impact on the lives of children and families who are learning to live ? and to thrive ? with autism.
Through an innovative hybrid approach that combines individualized in-center and in- home hands-on therapy, we meet each child where they are developmentally, and strive to help them acquire the skills needed to live happy and productive lives. We see the child, not the diagnosis, and collaborate with families to move beyond the diagnosis. We?re looking for aspiring Behavior Therapists who share this passion and philosophy to make meaningful and impactful change in the lives of children. You?ll be helping miracles happen, on a daily basis. If you?re ready to embrace the adventure, then CAC has a place for you on our team.
CAC is currently seeking part-time (15-20 hours plus/week) Behavior Therapists available to work weekdays from 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. AND/OR 12 p.m. ? 6:00 p.m. We currently have openings serving the Oceanside area with a starting rate of $16 - $21/hour.
RBT?s will provide one-to-one behaviorally based treatment to young children living with autism and developmental delays in their homes, schools, and in the CAC center. RBT?s travel between clients? homes, schools and the center, typically traveling at least 30 miles a day. As a RBT, you?ll be supplied with a structured, research-based curriculum to guide your therapy session with each child.
