Therapists/technicians at The Wayman Center either already have the RBT (Registered Behavior Technician) credential or are in the process of attaining the credential. The Wayman Center values therapists who are knowledgeable and dedicated, and who intend to pursue behavior analysis, or another child-centered professional field, as a career path. Therefore, emphasis is placed on training, supervision and employee interactions that are most likely to maximize the addition and long-term retention of dedicated, qualified and knowledgeable therapists, who conduct themselves in a professional and ethical manner, as this is likely to produce the most benefit for the children who receive TWC services. The Wayman Center has a relatively low turnover rate because staff are provided daily support and feedback, as well as a positive, ethical and collaborative work environment.
From time to time The Wayman Center has an opening a full-time behavior technician. The ideal applicant loves interacting with children, has a Bachelor’s degree in behavior analysis or a related field such as psychology, special education, early childhood, etc., and has worked with children with special needs, including autism, preferably in some type of ABA program.
Compensation includes competitive hourly wage, generous paid vacation/leave/holidays and relatively low-cost comprehensive health insurance. Technicians work their full schedule, whether or not clients are available, and are paid accordingly.
