We are seeking a Home Therapist to provide hands-on skills development and behaviour intervention to our sweet boy, who has Autism. He is almost 5 years old, and has been receiving therapy for about 2 years. Paid training will be provided. The Home Therapist will work in a private home as part of a therapy team under the supervision and direction of a trained Senior Therapist.
Applicants must have a minimum of two years post-secondary education in Psychology or a related field, however individuals with relevant work experience and related education would also be considered. Coursework in Autism Spectrum Disorder, developmental psychology or behaviour analysis or experience working with children with developmental delays or behavioural issues would be an asset. This position is for approximately 20 hours per week, however we have some flexibility with hours. The pay is $20.00 per hour (+ 4% vacation pay), depending on completed education and experience.
This position will most likely start in late November, or very early December. Our home is located in Southlands in St. John’s. We have a clean and smoke-free home with a small havanese dog. Our little boy was diagnosed when he was 2.5 years old, and has limited verbal abilities (he speaks in 2-3 word phrases). He is very adaptable and loving, and our family is excited to find another wonderful therapist to provide this intervention. We are looking for applicants to have a 12-month commitment to this position. Vulnerable sector check will be required.
