Seeking motivated individual to help teach a 10 year old boy with Autism and visual impairment. Wonderful learning opportunity for a student interested in the fields of Autism, special education, or behavioral psychology. Experience in behavioral therapy (Applied Behavioral Analysis) is helpful, but not necessary. Will be working jointly with Registered Behavior technicians (RBTs), BCBA (Board certified Behavior Analyst) and speech therapist. Also will be translating skills learned at school to the home environment. Focus will be on reduction of self-injurious behavior, teaching communication with sign language and speech-generating device, and increasing adaptive skills like toileting, dressing, etc.
We live in Vienna, about 15-20 minutes from campus (own car is helpful). Rate will be determined by level of experience and goodness of fit, but minimum rate of $12/hour. Hours are flexibile, but 3-7 pm on some weekdays as well as any weekend time available is what we are hoping for. Hoping for a start date in late August.
