Pros: rewarding, working in the field, ever-changing, a lot of independence in developing sessions
Cons: lots of driving, can be isolating because of the lack of consistent office setting, flexibility of hours is minimal
A typical day as a Behavioral Interventionist is very dependent upon your case load and the mood of your clients for that particular day. I see approximately three clients per day at home and work with children and their families on building social relationships and increasing communication. Working with children with Autism has its challenges but is very rewarding. I enjoy the complexity of my job and the constant need to change and adapt my sessions to accomodate my clients.
