BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst) and BCBA Supervision

A BCBA certification is a graduate-level certification in behavior analysis.  This is the only nationally recognized certification that allows for the assessments and  design of behavioral interventions using Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) for children with Autism.  As part of becoming fully certified, BCBA students need supervision as part of their training.  We provide and offer supervision hours to students who are interested in getting certified in this field and further grow their careers.   Our BCBA Supervisors are professional, well-trained, compassionate professionals with many years of experience.”

We are also looking for full-time BCBAs who are looking for work in an innovative, cutting edge company that is rapidly growing.  Our BCBAs have the opportunity work work in a collaborative environment supervision staff and designing behavioral treatment using ABA for children with autism.  This would happen in the home or clinic-based setting.  We hope the BCBA would be familiar with using Electronic Record keeping, provide assessments, and meet and collaborate with parents and professionals regularly.

We are looking for a strong team member who can also think outside of the box while implementing and maintaining strong ABA disciplines in their treatment approach to our patients with Autism.

Be a part of a collaborative time and have direct access to SLPs, OTs, Clinical Psychologists and MD.
