Employment Opportunities at Florida Autism Center
“To say FAC makes a difference is an understatement. Where else can you find a job that actually changes the lives of children all while those same children teach you so much about yourself and the world around you?
Working a FAC is so much more than just a job, it shows you who you are.”
Quinicka Bryant, RBT
We hope you join us because that’s what you will get with a career at FAC. Become a member of the FAC Family and change lives.
Registered Behavior Therapist (RBT) and ABA Therapist Positions
At FAC, we are always focused on making a difference in the lives of the exceptional children at our centers. The bonus being, our team members often find that the benefits are reciprocal. Our behavior therapists say that the kids they work with pass on their own lessons too and their lives are forever altered.
Does this sound like a career that is meant for you? As an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapist or Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) with FAC you will serve as a critical member of the FAC family. You’ll collaborate with others in your center along with leading experts in the behavior industry to form best practices and to innovate with the latest data-based findings. It is an opportunity to provide one-on-one ABA therapy to children and be responsible for implementing skill-acquisition and behavior-reduction plans, all while taking careful notes to track progress and truly utilize the data to journey forward with that individual child, wherever the journey may take you. At FAC, we say Start here. Go anywhere, because each journey is unique and we are with our kids every step of the way.
Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) provide support and direction for the children you work with as well as supporting you! We work with the best of the best and you will have limitless opportunities for growth and expansion within FAC, access to research, continuing education, peer mentors, and so much more.
