Behavioral Treatment Technician

  • Are you searching for a rewarding and enriching experience – not just a job?

  • Would you like to contribute to the developmental progress in a young child with autism?

  • Are you interested in securing valuable field experience in a number of majors including psychology, health care, and special education?

We are currently hiring for our Behavioral Treatment Technician position which involves providing one on one applied behavioral analysis (ABA) therapy; most often in an in-home setting. If you enjoy working and playing with children, and have a desire to foster developmental growth, we would love to hear from you. 

Each client has a team consisting of 3-4 Behavioral Treatment Technicians under the supervision of a Behavioral Treatment Therapist and Licensed Clinical Supervisor. Treatment sessions are 2-3 hours long, with most children receiving 30-35 total hours of therapy per week. Technicians work a minimum of 7 and a maximum of 12 hours per week with one child. Many employees work with several different children.   Therapy is provided 6-7 days per week, and weekend sessions may be required. We serve children in Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties. Partial travel reimbursement is provided.

Change is difficult for many of us, and this is particularly true for children with autism. As a result, applicants must be willing to offer at least a 6-9 month commitment to the job. AIM does not offer temporary or seasonal employment. Access to your own personal transportation and proof of auto insurance are required. 

Read through the full job description and then complete the online application form, both found on the right side of this page. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
