Entry Level Autism Caregiver

CENTRIA HEALTHCARE – Grand Rapids, MI

Part-time

The Behavior Technician position is the perfect fit for a Teacher, Paraprofessional, Caregiver, or Healthcare Professional looking for an exciting part-time career opportunity. This position is also a great fit for candidates with experience or interest in working with children with special needs or autism. Current Behavioral Interventionists, ABA Therapists or ABA Technicians are encouraged to apply.

Positions are available on a part-time basis.

Behavior Technicians, under the supervision of a clinician, use Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy to encourage positive behaviors and discourage negative behaviors, as well as to improve a variety of skills for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The child’s progress is then tracked and measured. ABA therapy is also used to increase language, communication skills, attention, focus, social skills, memory, and academics. ABA techniques focus on positive reinforcement; when a positive behavior is followed by something that is valued to the child, such as “a reward”, that behavior is more likely to occur in the future.

ABA Behavior Technician Responsibilities:

  • Behavioral Technician will work mostly in the home (with a potential of working in a nearby clinic center) with children on the Autism Spectrum to provide ABA therapy.
  • Responsible for recording and collecting data on an iPad on the progress and abilities of the child.
  • Behavior Technician will be supervised/trained weekly by a Behavior Consultant (BC) and must be ready to provide feedback to the BC on current progress and implement programs and recommendations given by the BC.
  • Application Requirements:

  • Minimum of a High School Diploma.

  • Must be a creative, hard-working, dependable individual with a passion and positive upbeat attitude for helping children and adolescents.
  • Must have proof of reliable transportation, driver’s license, and valid car insurance.
  • Need to be at least 18 years of age and able to pass a criminal and background check.
  • Job Requirements:
