Good job for the experience.
Program Counselor-Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) –  Palo Alto, CASeptember 13, 2017
It's a very good 1st professional job to get experience, I would highly recommend AchieveKids. It's a relaxed environment but can be stressful at times, some classrooms are definitely harder than others.
Pros
A lot of PTO, Good benefits
Cons
Co-workers can be difficult to work with at times

Fun workplace
Program Counselor (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAOctober 13, 2016
Co-workers and HR were very friendly. Nice and quiet atmosphere when the children are out of school.

The hardest part of the job was try to calm down a child when a tantrum occurred.

I would only recommend this job to people who have experience working with autistic children, and extremely patient.

The children will certainly get violent. So be prepared.

Good learning environment
Mental Health Therapist, Registered MFT Intern (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAAugust 9, 2013
A typical day will include individual therapy sessions, group therapy session, and lots of collaboration with others in the treatment team including the on-site speech and occupational therapists and behavioral therapist. Additionally, interactions with the teachers and staff and the clients group homes and parents were quite valuable. There was also opportunity for involvement in the IEP process. This culminated in the strong learning environment for a therapist.
