TSS (Former Employee) –  Franklin/Tri-CountyJanuary 10, 2013
I had the ability to work with YAP in two different programs. While I found that they were culturally diverse the company ran on the same basic morals, values, and beliefs. I found my job to be very rewarding and enjoyed being able to work with children on the spectrum in an influential manner. I also found it rewarding to be able to assist their parents and community members in understanding the behavior the child was displaying and offering interventions on how to make them positive experiences instead of negative ones. Both times that I have to "quit" my job was not an easy transition for me, nor was it an easy decision to make as I truly enjoyed the company and the work that was given to me.
Pros
rewarding experience, full time work, competitive pay, excellent management
Cons
not pto/vacation, benefits were not desireable, occasional aggression

I helped kids and adults acclimate themselves on a day to day basis, If they needed assistance getting dressed or just having a fun day,I would help them out.
