Do you want to teach children how to talk?
Look no further. Behavioral Connections is hiring behavior technicians to work with children with an autism spectrum diagnosis. You’ll use therapies from Applied Behavior Analysis to empower children with language, letting them access the world around them.

Others using it as a stepping stone towards careers in counseling, social work, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech language pathology, and many more. And many find themselves enjoying this positioning as a fulfilling career. But whatever path you choose, the first step is here.
