Clinical Service Associate (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 6, 2018
Autism Spectrum Therapies is a company with a great cause. Unfortunately the company's scheduling department lacks structure. They offer voluntary overtime but the position has so many expectations that the overtime is almost a requirement to reach deadlines.
When I worked there, it was a great environment to be in.

In the finance department, our CFO had incentives for his team when we would meet our financial goals. Because of this, our team felt valued for all our hard work. They have a different CFO now, so I am not sure how the work environment is now.

I learned a tremendous amount and felt like I had grown professionally and personally for any situation. It is a grueling but soul rewarding job. It teaches you to stretch your limits and honor your boundaries. Relationships are key. Be of service to your families and be receptive to your supervisors.

Really enjoyed my employment at the company and now regret leaving them. They Know what they're doing and you will learn from all their trainings and your colleagues. There room for advancement as they hire within. I highly recommend working and learning from there.
Board Certified Autism Technician (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – July 10, 2018
Supervisors at AST have taught me a lot about ABA. Working with kids can be tough but it is a rewarding job especially when families notice improvements on their kids. AST is a great place to work at except the job can be a bit isolating for interventionists.
Mileage reimbursement, paid cancellation but depends

If you’re ok with working with little to no contact with other employees this company is the place for you. I enjoy working with my coworkers and picking their brains to help my clients on their programs. This company didn’t make me feel welcome. The work and the kids were amazing though!
Behavior Interventionist (Current Employee) – Monrovia, CA – June 22, 2018
This is a difficult job with few rewards, especially if you work in a school setting. It is a glorified babysitting job when working at school. The pay is low, with inconsistent hours, and there is very limited opportunity to move up, unless you have your BCBA, and it is very difficult to get BCBA certification hours.
Limited room for advancement, limited career development, low wages
Behavior Interventionist (Current Employee) – Ontario, CA – June 13, 2018
AST is a great place to work. You get great support form supervisors and others in the company. There are many great qualities of this company. They are great with working with you schedule and encourage the pursuit of education.
Behavioral Health Interventionalist (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 10, 2018
I loved the people I got to work with at AST. They were caring and professional people dedicated to improving the lives of the children under our care. The only probably was the hours. It was not uncommon for me to work less than 20 hours a week when I was supposed to be full time. I had reached out multiple times to increase my workload but every time I would be given another client it ended up ending leaving me with about 20 hours of work for a week. This did not allow me to function very well in the Chicago area as I wasn't receiving enough to pay my rent.
Good job if you are looking for an Entry Level poistion
Behavior Interventionist (Former Employee) – Apple Valley, CA – March 22, 2018
The job was a decent job if you were just starting out in the field. I felt like I was underpaid and not given enough cases. I think if I went in with a lower expectation than I may have felt differently.
You meet great people and help families struggling with their autistic child.
