Behavior Therapists at May Institute

We have career and internship opportunities for people who are dedicated, motivated, and ready to make a difference in the lives of children, adolescents, and adults with autism and their loved ones.

We offer a continuum of care that begins with home-based applied behavioral analysis (ABA) services for toddlers newly diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and continues with school consultation, residential placement, special education schools, and adult services to meet the needs of the many individuals in our care, and their families.

We highlight three key career opportunities below.

You will receive extensive training in using ABA to work with our students and will learn to implement a student’s social, behavioral, and academic programs.
