This position coordinates and oversees behavior analytic services for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. In this leadership role, you will guide the development and expansion of our program in Santa Cruz, CA. You will maintain a caseload (approximately 20 hours) which consists of working directly with children and families; however, most of your time will be allocated to leadership and management activities.
The Program Director is responsible for onboarding of new employees and monitoring implementation of programs mainly within Santa Cruz and surrounding areas. Currently, services are offered to clients in home and school settings. Home-based services target the core and associated deficits of autism and our practices are derived from contemporary research in applied behavior analysis (e.g., verbal behavior). School consultation includes some direct work with students but could also involve consulting with teachers and other educators regarding intervention plans for students, classroom management, and school-wide systems change.
This position is also responsible for developing, supervising and cultivating a growing team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts, and Behavior Therapists. In addition, the Program Director will manage the day to day practices of the program, provide oversight and manage the operating budget, performance metrics, and staffing levels.
This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated, independent individual!
