Posted on: September 10, 2020

Job Description:

Position Overview
The Behavior Support Consultant is well versed in the principles and applications of Applied Behavior Analysis and works with school staff (teachers, administrators and support staff), and/or home staff and parents to facilitate positive behavior change for individuals who exhibit problem behaviors that interfere with the acquisition of skills and with their participation in the community. The Behavior Support Consultant conducts careful assessments to identify the environmental variables that occasion and maintain the problem behaviors and the potential skill deficits of the student, and then works with school staff and/or the parents/guardians to develop appropriate treatment plans. When necessary, the Behavior Support Consultant will also address various skill domains (communication, self-help, academic, safety, and social) by developing teaching plans, training others to implement them, collecting reliable and meaningful data, graphing data and regularly monitoring progress. Staff training is a requirement in this position as school and/or home staff will need to become fluent in the implementation of Behavior Intervention Programs and skill acquisition programs. This position requires regular and timely documentation of consultation services for clinical and regulatory purposes. This professional also supervises and completes performance reviews of staff assigned to his/her cases.

Provide direct supervision and training to ensure accurate implementation of evidence-based educational and clinical practices.
Participate in multidisciplinary team meetings when necessary.

Requirements
Licensed mental health clinician, including psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed professional counselors (LPC), and licensed clinical social workers (LCSW), or
Master's Degree from an accredited university in a clinical mental health discipline, such as: Psychology, Counseling, Clinical Social Work, Psychiatric Nursing, and Marriage and Family Therapy
Current certification as Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) or
Master's Degree must include clinical coursework in the foundations of behavioral health and the provision of mental health services (i.e., individual, group and family therapy, abnormal psychology, psychopathology, cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic therapy, crisis counseling, assessment, child development, personality theory, psychotherapy lab, clinical practicum). Other courses may count as determined by review of transcript/syllabi. In order for a degree to count as a mental health degree, the degree must contain at least twelve (12) credit hours in core behavioral health coursework as defined above. No more than three (3) of these twelve (12) credit hours can be derived from a supervised clinical mental health practicum experience (teaching/education/other non-clinical practicum experiences will not count). Courses such as statistics, program and policy development, and program administration, will not count as behavioral health courses because they do not include instruction in the direct provision of mental health services. If coursework is part of a medical degree, there must be clear evidence that the course was directly related to the diagnosis and treatment of mental health disorders rather than medical conditions. Appropriate medical degrees/training will include substantial training in mental health disorders; medical degrees that are behavioral health-related usually include a residency in psychiatry.
