A good job to start out in after graduating with a BA in Social Work
Therapeutic Support Staff (Current Employee) – Lancaster, PA – October 24, 2015
There is quite a bit of traveling during the week between schools and homes of our clients. We implement interventions for behaviors, social skills, and safety skills per each child's individualized treatment plan. We transfer skills to school staff, parents, and caregivers. Written and oral communication is important for a TSS role. Data is collected to help monitor child's progress. The hardest part of the job is remaining objective. The best part of the job is the direct care with the children. I learned a lot about children who are on the spectrum.
Great health benefits which are free with 30+ hours a week of work.
Travel and paperwork is $7.25/hour.
