Butterfly Effects is hiring Child Interventionists (entry-level and experienced) to teach young children affected by autism. We want you to enjoy coming to work, so we dedicate ourselves to making our teams feel valued, respected, and heard. This isn't just another place to work, it's a welcoming environment with a leadership team that champions every individual to achieve their potential.

About the Child Interventionist Role:

Our home-based treatment involves working directly with the child and the family in their natural environment (most often their home), to teach them how to communicate, share, play, wait, and other essential skills. BE's Child Interventionist makes the home-session fun by teaching through play-based activities. We offer training to all staff, so they feel confident in the skills required to instruct children affected by autism. The best fit for this role is someone very outgoing, energetic, and friendly, with childcare experience.

This is a part-time role requiring 10-20 hours per week. The most common times for sessions are after-school hours between 3pm-7pm, but schedules and hours will vary based on client needs.
