Eastside Social Skills Therapy, LLC is currently seeking part-time employees to work as Behavior Technicians providing 1:1 behavior and educational intervention with our clients who have autism. Current positions available are in Issaquah, Bellevue, Redmond and Sammamish. Most of these positions are part-time ranging from 10-20 hours a week; mostly in the later afternoon hours, early evenings, and weekends. Behavior Technicians work in 2-3 hour shifts across multiple days in a week. They can work with one client or across multiple clients depending upon Eastside’s needs. This position is ideal for college students or recent graduates who are seeking clinical experiences. Graduate students looking for supervised practicum experiences or young college students looking to become Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT) are also encouraged to apply.
Duties of a Behavior Technician:
- Behavior Technicians are primarily responsible for the direct implementation of skill-acquisition and behavior-reduction that is defined in their client’s Treatment Plan that is developed by their Program Manager. This intervention primarily uses the Principals of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and may also include other teaching techniques that have been proven as an effective treatment for young children with autism to help with generalization of skills learned. These services can occur in the child’s home, school and/or out in the community.
- Behavior Technicians will also be required to attend team meetings, collect data, and conduct certain types of assessments (e.g., stimulus preference assessments, ABLLS, VP-MAPP).
- The Behavior Technician does not design intervention or assessment plans. It is the responsibility of the designated Program Manager to determine which tasks a Behavior Technician may perform as a function of his or her training, experience, and competence. The designated Program Manager is ultimately responsible for the work performed by the Behavior Technician.
- The Behavior Technician reports directly to a Program Manager (BCBA) and will be trained and supervised during scheduled work times with the client, through team meetings, and/or 1:1 with the Program Manager or company trainer in private.
- Every Behavior Technician must be trained on Ethics and current HIPAA laws prior to working with the client and pass a criminal registry background check.
Behavior Technicians will also receive HIV/Blood Pathogens certification and Safety Training within 30 days of hiring.
We prefer hiring someone who has at least one year experience working with young children with autism and is a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) with the Behavior Analyst Control Board and is interested in becoming a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). However the minimum job qualifications to work as a Behavior Technician is the following:
- Must be 18 years of age
- Have a high school diploma or national equivalent
- Have a reliable vehicle with valid and current proof of car insurance
- Eligible to work in the United States.
Compensation: Hourly rate of $15-25 depending upon experience.
