Great experiencce for a college student
Early Intervention Therapist (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – February 25, 2015
The typical work day for the majority of staff here (aba therapists) involves driving to clients homes, conducting aba therapy, and then heading off to another client. The work is 1:1, so there isn't much interaction with team members or other coworkers. Most therapists see 2-3 clients per day.
While this was a great place to get hands on experience in the field of mental health, the work itself was often very draining and required full energy both mentally and physically.
The management, while improving, was challenging for many therapists and other employees to work under. Some of the supervisors are very professional, respectful, and enjoyable to work with while others are not.
Overall, if you're looking to get experience in the mental health field, are looking to make a little more money than most aba companies pay, and want to make a positive, long-term difference in the lives young children and their families, this could be a good opportunity.
Good experiece & pay (for the field). Meaningful work
Challenging work, not much room for advancement (without a masters)
