“After 23 years, I still get teary-eyed on a regular basis. My team has grown used to me jumping up and down with excitement… Best job ever!” – Actual WEAP Employee
Hiring for Washington, Ozaukee, and surrounding counties!
If you enjoy children and are looking for meaningful work that makes a difference in the lives of children and families, then you just might be a perfect fit for our organization!
Wisconsin Early Autism Project is a statewide organization that provides early, intensive behavioral intervention to children with autism. As a Behavioral Treatment Technician, you’d work one-on-one with children (18 months to school age), helping them learn to communicate, play with others, and live more independent lives.
CHANGE A CHILD’S LIFE
As a Behavioral Treatment Technician, you get to witness some amazing milestones. You get to be there when a little boy learns to say his own name, or when a little girl learns to hug her mom for the first time. And best of all, you get to know that you helped make it happen!
WORK WHERE YOU LIVE
Choose whether you want to work at our treatment center in Brookfield, in clients’ homes, or a combination of both. Since we have clients all over the state, that means you have the opportunity to work in your own community!
GROW WITH WEAP
Advancement opportunities within WEAP are excellent. Odds are, your supervisor started as a Technician. And odds are, their supervisor started as a Technician, too. In fact, the highest level clinicians at WEAP all started work as Behavioral Treatment Technicians.
This entry-level position is a great way to gain experience for anyone interested in a career in social services. You’ll receive 40 hours of hands-on training with the most experienced behavioral treatment specialists in the state of Wisconsin.
Working on a degree? Have kids of your own? WEAP offers flexible part-time hours that fit around school, extracurricular activities, and any other weekly commitments. Shifts range from two to six hours, and generally fall between the hours of 7 am and 6 pm. Work anywhere from 8-40 hours per week, depending on your schedule and client availability.
Besides the obvious benefit of doing something you love, you are provided with paid training plus travel reimbursement, with the opportunity for annual increases based on total hours worked. Part-time work can lead quickly to full-time work which is rewarded with a higher travel reimbursement, dental and medical benefits, paid time off, and 401K eligibility.
