At AEIOU Foundation for Children with Autism, we have a simple yet sincere goal: to provide early intervention that enables children with autism to live their best lives. It’s how we do it that sets us apart from everybody else.
AEIOU is a profit-for-purpose organisation, established in 2005 to deliver high-quality therapy and care. Our family-centred program meets the Guidelines for Good Practice and supports children with autism to develop essential life skills, independence, and confidence.
We are excited to offer experienced professionals the opportunity to join AEIOU in the critical role of Behaviour Analyst.
This is an exciting opportunity to support children with autism aged 2 - 6 years. The role will be working within a therapy team, contributing to individual plans to support children to maximise their cognitive and social capabilities, and to reduce or eliminate maladaptive behaviour. The Behaviour Analyst provides training and supervision to team members in their area of expertise including how to conduct assessments and deliver behavioural interventions. You will ensure the clinical program is implemented effectively, and children are best supported to meet their therapy and education goals.
You will operate within an early learning framework and provide high quality specialist therapy support for children with autism spectrum disorder, their families and carers.
The successful candidate is ideally a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA), however, candidates who have completed a Masters in Applied Behaviour Analysis or who are studying towards their BCBA qualifications or hold a current BCaBA qualification may be considered.
You will be someone who has experience delivering therapy services to children with Autism and have an understanding of the principles of behavioural interventions (including Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) and other complementary models of practice).
You will need to hold a current Blue Card/Working with Children Check registration (dependent on the state you are working in)
Note: If you do not hold a current registration you will need to apply for and have an approved a combined NDIS Worker Screening Check clearance and Employee Blue Card before you can commence employment).
Whilst local candidates will be given priority, AEIOU is open to international candidates and visa support will be considered for BCBA candidates only.
