Seeking therapist for approx 20 hours a week to work in home with a 10-year-old boy on the autism spectrum. Shifts would include 4-hour sessions on three weekdays (currently Wed, Thurs, Fri) as well as therapy/respite time on one evening (approx 3 hours around 4-7pm) and one weekend day (approx 5 hours around 2-7pm). The weekday therapy sessions may be in the morning (~8-12) or afternoon (~1-5). Therapist preference will be accommodated if possible via coordination with other staff. The weeknight and weekend shifts would be the same/recurring days each week. Please note that an increase in hours, adding weekday therapy shifts, will likely be possible during summer months (June-August) if this is of interest. A full-time engagement is also possible to arrange, especially if candidate is open to adding overnight respite.
The therapy aspects will be directed by the parents who have selected methodologies that seem best fit for their child currently. Training will be provided. A significant investment by the parents is necessary to provide this training including the parents' time, expense for materials and course enrollments, and expense for the staff hours related to training and meeting time. Given this, we will only accept candidates who are very confident in a significant time period commitment to this position and have a strong passion for autism treatment as a professional pursuit.
This is not a cash job. Paychecks will be direct deposited twice monthly with FICA deduction. Background check will be run. Candidate must also be a good driver as appointments and outings may be involved.
Pay rate will be hourly at $12-$18/hr depending on qualifications.
To apply, provide your background education, work experience, any other related experiences or notable qualities as well as your anticipated schedule/availability for the shifts mentioned, and also a brief overall summary of why you think you are a good fit for this position.
Thanks so much.
