General description of services and support:
Person centered problem solving – every case is different and every client is different. It helps to have a working knowledge and understanding of various disabilities, especially Autism, but every case is still different. Specific challenging behaviors are not always clear. A team member must be able to identify the roadblocks and creatively problem solve to overcome them.
Team collaboration – a typical team can include the client (individual with support needs), all family members, the Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor, CSB Support Coordinator, a therapist, employer (possibly multiple supervisors) and an Employment Specialist. A team member must be able to bring all these parties together to implement strategies and act as a team.
Exceptional time management – a team member must be able to manage their own schedule and appointments. This requires good communication and planning. Consider organizing team meetings to include all team members mentioned above.
Behavior specific support – a team member will be able to do the following independently:
Functional behavior assessment to include:
FBA interviews with all relevant team members
Comprehensive records review
Person Centered Thinking Tools
Observation/data collection/data analyzation
Write a person-centered behavior support plan
Implement strategies from the BSP and train all team members for effectiveness of strategies.

Location: Culpeper, Manassas, and Warrenton, VA areas.
This is not a remote position. A team member would need to be able to travel to the above areas for face-to-face support.

Must be a credentialed behavior support specialist (BCBA). Excellent verbal and written communication skills. Character, positive attitude and teachability are more important than experience.

Application process: interested candidates should be prepared to submit a letter explaining why they would be a good fit for our team along with their current credentials.
