I have been working at Central Valley Autism Project full-time
CVAP provides high quality services for individuals with ASD and opportunities to develop and grow skills in all positions. Staff are supported by their designated primary supervisors and additional supervisory staff. CVAP invests in their staff by providing training, clear expectations, frequent on site supervision, and ongoing professional development outside of initial training. CVAP values staff professional growth and has their own quality BCBA preparatory program for eligible staff seeking trainee hours for the BCBA certification. Parent training is highly emphasized within treatment programs, as the research strongly supports family involvement for promoting generalization and independence of skills during non-intervention hours. CVAP is progressive in their research efforts by modeling the vigor and dedication of the late Dr. Lovaas. They have published research which supports the efficacy of their EIBT treatment along with additional studies in progress. CVAP is a longstanding provider in our community due to the high standards for quality of care.
Standards for staff performance may be perceived as high by some, but they are needed for high quality behavioral intervention services. We provide medically necessary treatment and implement quality control measures to ensure our clients receive the best care!
Advice to Management
Continue to support your staff in growth opportunities within the organization. Great work so far!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Central Valley Autism Project (Sacramento, CA) in April 2018.
I observed a clinical session for a few minutes with the center's clinical director. I then spoke to the hiring manager to discuss my previous work experience and future goals.
