Why become an ABA therapist?

Because families with autism need you! Because it’s a rewarding carer and because there is a shortage of ABA Therapists in Australia.

Typically families embark on an ABA program as an early intervention measure, however ABA can be applied across the life span.

The role of the ABA therapist is pivotal in helping individuals with autism learn how to learn. Supported by a highly-skilled and highly-educated team, ABA therapists work daily with individuals with autism: teaching, educating, guiding, supporting, coaching.

As a trained ABA therapist you’ll share responsibility for delivering the ABA curriculum, which has been tailored specifically for the child in your care. This means you’ll play a significant role in each child’s learning and development. For anyone who loves kids, there is perhaps no better reward. But don’t just take it from us, let’s hear what existing ABA therapists have to say …

With NDIS funding for autism, there’s currently a copious amount of work and a corresponding shortage of ABA therapists. Choose your hours, work days, work location, and families by working as a self-employed therapist. Or find employment with an ABA Service Provider or disability agency and reap the rewards that come with employment. Either way, there’s an option that suits and a job with your name on it.

And with three training delivery methods, there’s an ABA therapy training session to suit your circumstances.
