    We are looking for a morning Behaviour Interventionist for our 14-YO son to start between now and September 2018. Ideally starting no later than mid-May, but if starting in September will help us find someone, we'll do it!

    We're looking for someone M-F from 7-8:30am, as long-term as possible. Morning routine involves supporting our son in learning to wake up, shower, get dressed, eat breakfast, brush teeth, and put on shoes and jacket independently for school/summer camp. Then drive him to school from our home in North Van to school in West Van. Taking the bus is also an option, but that would start the morning earlier. As well, I could drive my son to school, but that would leave the shift to be only 1-1.25hrs.

    It will be under the supervision of a BCBA. Pay would depend on experience. No specific BI training is required, as our BCBA can do the training, but openness, patience, kindness, and interest are a requirement. There is also an opportunity for after school and weekend hours if interested (not required).

    PT, 1:1 Behaviour Intervention at Nanaimo Station (East Vancouver)

    In Brief:

    East Vancouver (Nanaimo Station) Family looking for a part-time Behavioral Interventionist for an in-home/out in the community position, with a very active and affectionate 6 year old boy, with (as yet) very limited verbal communication skills.

    Supervision: Sarah Dungait, BCBA (regular active supervision of team of 2BIs, 1 Jr. BC)

    Hours: 15 hours per week, in 3hr per day sessions. During Spring break, Summer break etc., up to 9 hours a day (though the time may be split with another worker, where one is not feasible)

    Details:

    We are seeking a Behaviour Interventionist to work with our 6-year old son on a part-time basis, generally at and around our home very near Nanaimo Station in East Vancouver, with outings to park playgrounds, etc. (no car or license required).

    Although this sounds like simple babysitting work, our son does not yet possess the minimal normative socialization to make ‘ordinary babysitting’ possible. The goal is, however, to steadily train him to be able to handle daily situations for a child his age more normatively, and particularly, to act normatively under the control of an adult who is not a parent, and interact smoothly in cooperative play with age-peers.

    Education: A related educational background, such as in the Cap. University ABA-Autism program, Psychology, Special Education, Occupational Therapy, etc. is ideal. (In the past we have had an excellent BI whose background was as an athletic coach for children, so we are open-minded! However, this person was a quick study in applying ABA practices.) A background in autism studies, and especially in practical ABA for young autistic children is a very strong asset.

    Experience: This can be a first BI contract for the right candidate. However, previous experience working with children in an ABA-based practice is an asset. Though not essential for the right person, as training will be provided by our Behaviour Consultant, work or student experiences similar to the following would help establish suitability: carrying out an ABA-based behaviour plan, achieving functional and instructional control of a very distracted and high energy boy in challenging contexts, thoughtfully reporting success or difficulties with progress, contributing to team meetings to modify a behavior plan, etc.

    Being a BI with Us: Our son is a very energetic, athletic and extremely affectionate 6 year old, but as yet has very limited spoken communication skills. As such, this position is only suitable for someone able to effectively keep up with, engage and motivate a playful, easily distracted young child who exhibits very little ‘natural’ inclination to listen to/obey adult instructions. At the same time, the candidate should be intelligent and serious enough to balance ‘rapport’ with effectively engaging with structured activities that the child will generally interpret as 'playing games'. Compared to some families, we run a fairly organized, goal-oriented, reflexive data-centered program. Although this position is intended to be the least-controlled and least focused on data-collection in his entire, fairly extensive program, this is not a babysitting position, but will be excellent practical experience for someone seeking to be a BCBA designing and implementing organized ABA-based programs for similar highly energetic children deemed difficult to control and/or be included in school, out-of-school care, playground, etc. situations in the future.

    Sessions: Must be able to commit to approx. 15 hours a week, in 3hr sessions, and to sticking around long enough to justify the expense of training (hopefully, for a year or more)

    Must be comfortable in a multi-religious, multi-racial environment. (Family and team are diverse.)

    To apply for this position please email: teamtaka0205@gmail.com
