First off, every day is different. Direct care workers of the Monarch Boarding academy serve clients with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ranging from ages 10 - 20. The responsibilities of the staff depend on the amount of guidance/assistance needed by the individual client. The management team reviews the clients' treatment plans with new hires, and then allows 1-2 weeks of shadowing/observation with the more "seasoned" staff prior to directly assigning staff to their clients.
Overall, the Monarch Boarding Academy offers a wealth of clinical experience to new applicants and is a great place for those seeking more exposure to behavioral interventions, crisis de-escalation/management, and collaboration between families and clinicians.
