EXPLORE THE REWARDING FIELD OF APPLIED BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS (ABA) THERAPY
Autism Support Now (ASN) is expanding its mission across several communities in Missouri and Kansas with a focus on supporting Medicaid eligible families and underserved areas. We are actively seeking employees in multiple fields.
ASN provides in clinic services to individuals diagnosed with Autism between the ages of 18 months to 14 years. ASN focuses on creating a platform for success for its teammates and clients by prioritizing training and professional development. Promotions from within the organization are common.
The BCaBAs are responsible for overseeing client’s behavior analytic services, collaborating with supervising BCBAs, coordinating with other team members, especially Registered Behavior Technicians and providing parent training and support.
To Provide Best in Class Service; ASN Must Have Best in Class Caregivers and Best in Class Support and Training
At ASN, Quality of Care is our top priority and in order to achieve that we have a robust on-boarding, training, support and oversight program. Overseen by our Senior Director of Clinical Care and a Senior Lead RBT, ASN strives for continuous improvement of training and support programs. Whether we are working with a new entry RBT or an experienced, credentialed BCBA, their personal and professional development is of paramount importance.
Registered Behavior Technician
Are you interested in teaching or health care or working with the developmentally disabled?
Being an RBT at ASN opens a horizon of opportunity with ASN or outside. For a young person, it provides an opportunity to exercise skills in caring for others without having to have invested years and fortune to determine if that field is right for them. Let’s face it, caring for others, especially those with special needs is physically, mentally, and emotionally taxing. It is not for everyone. For those who excel, it is a special calling that fills a critical need that few are suited to perform.
Are you worried about how to become an RBT? We can and will take the fear out of getting started?
From the outset, an RBT makes a difference. They teach and they learn from, nearly day one. From there, the impact and the learning only grows. With the support and guidance of a Lead RBT, Board Certified Behavioral Analysts (BCBAs), Clinic Directors and Clinical Support staff, the RBT is afforded the opportunity to learn and grow.
Are you interested in a career track in Applied Behavioral Analytics or a related field?
Being a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) is a great career or a great starting point for a career. Not diminishing the contributions of other positions at ASN, the RBT is not only on the front-line in care, but provides the critical core of the care to ASN clients. Choosing to be an RBT and meeting the basic requirements immediately propels a person into critical service delivery providing real-world, hands-on experience almost immediately. It is one of the few chosen fields, where one, almost immediately, begins on a path of learning and providing care.
