Job Description:

The Breakthrough Behavior Model
Breakthrough Behavior strives to help communities one family at a time. More than five million adults in the United States have autism, and one in 54 are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). We believe every person with autism and other developmental disabilities are entitled to simple access to care, clinical excellence and personal service. Breakthrough Behavior provides applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy to families in their homes, schools, communities and inside our clinics. ABA utilizes research-based techniques to increase useful and positive behaviors and reduce those that may cause harm or interfere with learning and is the most effective evidence-based treatment for autism recommended by physicians, the American Psychological Association, and the U.S. Surgeon General.

Strategy for Success: Board Certified Behavior Analysts
Breakthrough Behavior is searching for the next leaders and innovators in our industry. Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) are Clinical Supervisors that provide support to individuals and their families, and ensure we reach the most successful outcomes. BCBAs coordinate services in ABA, function analyses and assessment, behavior acquisition and reduction procedures, and adaptive life skills. They also oversee programming of associate behavior analysts and provide ongoing support and supervision to registered behavior technicians (RBTs) as it relates to the implementation and documentation associated with Behavior Support Plans.
