We are seeking a Behavior Consultant to join our team.
Earn $ 26+/hour
The Behavior Consultant in collaboration with other members of the treatment team, designs and directs the implementation of a behavior modification intervention plan which is individualized to each child or adolescent and to family needs. The Behavior Consultant identifies behavioral goals and intervention techniques and recommends non-aversion behavioral change methods. The Behavior Consultant typically serves as consultant to, and as requested by the Mobile Therapist within the treatment team. While maintaining some direct contact with child and family, the BC primarily provides assessment; program design and monitoring rather than direct therapy. The BC is expected to participate in team meetings. When questions or conflict around behavioral paradigms arise in other systems, such as school, (e.g., a review of a behavior paradigm to help the child remain in school), the BC may participate as a consultant in a special child-centered, family focused meetings along with the therapist.
