The community needs your skills, become an applied behavior analyst

Working in the disabilities and mental health support field is immensely fulfilling. Seth’s Mom founder, Dr. Monique Day, began her love for providing services to the community as a residential counselor. It was challenging, with many long hours and required balancing a complex mix of service needs. However, what she found was her lifelong calling and what would be a serendipitous course of events that would prepare her for her son, Seth, being diagnosed with autism. The community needs you in a very real way. Individuals diagnosed with autism and other behavior disorders grows steadily. There is a need for talented applied behavior analysts and specialist that can not only gain the necessary knowledge but implement learned techniques in a caring and effective way.

The impact is real

One of Dr. Day’s favorite stories is one in which a client who had never spoken began using words after she and her staff implemented a new program. While not a behavior analyst herself, she saw the value in working closely with specialists to develop individualized and effective treatment program. Take the time to examine the field and all the possibilities.The disability community needs YOU. Begin your disabilities career by visiting school web sites such as The Chicago School or Ashford University for information about convenient online academic programs.
