Join The Sonder Academy Team
At The Sonder Academy we offer a variety of challenging and rewarding careers that help build the best future for children with Autism. The Sonder Academy offers positions in all three facets of the school; behavior, education, and administration. No matter the department, each employee has the opportunity to make a lasting impact on the education and growth of our students. Join us and become part of a team that truly has a desire to give the best to our students in a professional yet fun-loving environment.
BCBAs at The Sonder Academy will see to the growth and skill development in children with autism while working with a team of well-trained RBTs and BCaBAs. Our BCBAs work with around 12 to 15 clients throughout the day, each holding a variety of behavioral and functional needs. They have access to integrated technology to improve efficiency of documentation, such as online data collection and session notes, to increase time spent with clients. When not attending to the children, BCBAs will also assist in parent training and meetings.
Our BCBAs also work hand in hand with the academic side of the classroom, making sure non-certified staff have the tools to assist the children with behavioral needs in order to give them their highest chance of academic success.
Registered Behavior Therapists (RBT's)
Our RBTs implement the behavior plans created by our BCBAs. They utilize positive reinforcement and antecedent modification to increase appropriate behaviors over time and manage inappropriate behaviors that occur. Most importantly, they have fun with our students while motivating through preference assessments and teaching them the skills that they need.
Special Education Teachers
Our teachers have qualities that match our core values of Integrity, Quality Services, Kids First, and Fun. Our teachers createindividualized educational programs for our students in collaboration with ABA principles that increase communication, self-help, social and play skills. They also facilitate a constructive, fun, and interactive classroom with a team of teacher’s aides, behavior technicians, and BCBAs that ultimately leads towards student growth.
The teacher’s aides support our teachers and their curriculum and help to sustain an open line of communication with teachers, behavior staff and parents. They are organized, flexible, creative, technologically savvy, have a good understanding of children with autism, have good class management techniques, and have the ability to collaborate with other staff members.
Those in our administrative positions work together to complete the daily operations of the school. From human resources to the front desk, they make sure the behavioral and education side get what they need in order to give the students the best at all times.
