Our ABA Interventionists use the principles of ABA to help patients improve social, play, language and academic skills, while helping reduce interfering behaviors, which may include aggressive behavior like biting or pinching. They reinforce positive behaviors and intervene when patients exhibit undesirable behaviors. We mostly work with children, but may sometimes treat adults with developmental or learning disorders as well. As a L.E.A.P.S. and Beyond, Inc. ABA Interventionist, you will work one-on-one with our clients. Therapy often takes place in the client’s home and in some cases, their school or other pre-designated setting. You will utilize highly structured treatment programs that are geared toward the specific client’s needs. The ABA Interventionist does not create these plans themselves, but instead use programs that are devised by our Supervising Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA). The plans are continually evaluated to measure effectiveness of the treatment program, and any necessary changes are made to help patients learn new skills and behaviors more effectively.
Shift times vary depending upon the age and needs of the client. Our clients typically require therapy sessions to be held during afternoons, evenings, and occasionally on weekends. The schedule is considered flexible and could be an ideal supplementary position for teachers, students, parents, and/or those with the requisite experience who are searching for alternatives to hard line full-time work schedules.
