A skilled and passionate person is sought as a Case Manager (aka Program Manager) for a small agency in Perth providing Early Intensive Behavioural Intervention (aka Intensive ABA) to children with autism.  The ideal candidate will be either a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) or a Board Certified Assistant Behaviour Analyst (BCaBA) with at least 3 years of experience providing both comprehensive interventions aimed at skill development and focused interventions such as toilet trainings, feeding interventions and sleep interventions.  However, Registered Behaviour Technicians will be considered so long as they are enrolled in a university course and accruing supervised experience toward the BCaBA or BCBA certificate.  (Free supervision hours will be provided by the BCBA-D Clinical Director.)   

The successful applicant will be proficient with teaching language using a “verbal-behaviour approach”, and with applying contemporary behaviour-analytic procedures to teach self-care, play, peer-interaction and early academic skills.  He/she should also be competent with a) initial assessments using various protocols (including the VB-MAPP); b) designing and updating programs for clients receiving services for up to 25 hours per week; c) training and supervising other staff implementing such programs; d) consulting with parents and other stakeholders; and e) report writing.  (A list of essential duties and the CM’s Performance Checklist will be provided upon enquiry.) 

Our agency is approved to offer capacity-building supports and specialist behavioural interventions funded by a client’s NDIS grant.  We presently serve clients in their homes, day-care centres or regular schools, so applicants will need to have an NDIS Worker Screening, a valid Australian driver’s license, and their own vehicle.  We strive to comply with the Practice Guidelines of the Council of Autism Service Providers (CASP), so the successful applicant will receive supervision from the BCBA-D Clinical Director, be asked to manage no more than 16 clients, and provide no more than 28 contact hours per week.  

A competitive remuneration package will include a salary commensurate with qualifications and experience (>$75,000 pa); a travel allowance; a contribution to superannuation savings; four weeks of paid annual leave; compensation for CEUs required to maintain BACB certification; and a contribution toward course fees for any higher BACB certification.  Casual positions can be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
