We are currently hiring college students to work part time with our program.
We are an in home autism program, which means we work with children on the autism spectrum right in their homes on a variety of skills such as communication skills, social skills, imaginary play, self help skills, fine and gross motor skills and behavior modification. At times we also go into the community to help the child generalize skills learned. The autism spectrum is so broad that all the children in our program are different from one another. Some children have Asperger’s Syndrome, (typically the child is high functioning but has social concerns), and some children have severe autism, while others fall somewhere else on the autism spectrum.
Line Therapists are paid for training. Pay is $8.75 per hour with annual raises based on performance and line therapists get up to 1 hour of travel per house per day. Most of our therapists are college students and therefore we work around their schedule. Typically shifts are 3 hours each, depending on what a child can handle.
You would work under a senior therapist. Each child has a senior therapist and the senior is the one that would train you and supervise the case.
