Soar Autism Center is building a network of interdisciplinary clinics where children with autism and their families receive life-shaping services that support them to thrive. We prioritize early intervention, comprehensive supportive services, and positive, developmentally-appropriate learning that meets the needs of each unique child and family. Specifically, we focus on integrated autism care and a play-based model of applied behavior analysis (ABA) a therapy based on the principles of the Early Start Denver Model.
A Behavior Technician (BT), also known as a Registered Behavior Technician, RBT, or ABA Therapist, works 1:1 with young children on the autism spectrum to support skill development, under the supervision of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and in partnership with our speech and occupational therapy teams. This is a unique opportunity to engage in mission-driven work and build a career that supports young children with autism spectrum disorder. Join us as we help them to soar!
