About Intercare Therapy, Inc
Intercare Therapy is a leading provider of ABA therapy evidence-based services. We help children and young adults diagnosed with autism and related disorders overcome behavioral & communication challenges.
For more than 30 years, our family-owned business has been guided by our founding principles of customization, communication, collaboration and compassion. Together, we empower our client families with the tools to maintain success and thrive independently.
We put our team first. We ensure everyone feels included and welcome. In a remote field, we bridge that gap by providing creating a completely open door communication policy with leadership (the CEO and President are always only an email away), social team gatherings, and involvement with events in the autism community. Just take a look at the teamwork, community, and fun we at Intercare value.
Why work for us?
We know that the key to our success is our employees, so we cultivate a work environment that encourages growth and long-term commitment, with competitive hourly rates, salaries and benefits. We’re looking for leaders, self-starters and energetic therapists who take pride in their work and—most importantly—love having fun with the kids of all ages.
Since 1979, our founding mission has remained the same: to empower families impacted by autism to achieve independence and their best quality of life.
WHO WE ARE:
We are a family run, family focused therapy provider of evidence-based services proven to help children and young adults diagnosed with autism and related disorders.
HOW WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE
We educate parents and caregivers in innovative developmental intervention techniques. We also empower our client families and support systems with the tools and confidence to maintain success and thrive independently.
Be prepared for a rewarding career. Forbes has recently recognized behavior analyst as the # 6 most meaningful occupation. Amongst that list is an elementary school principal, police chief, and orthopedic surgeon. The reward is found in a child's progress and the immense gratitude of their families. With your help, a mother may hear the word mama for the first time, or see their child ride a bike or learn some independence.
In harmony with the important work you do, we at Intercare strive to implement a robust support system. We believe in fostering the professional development of all of our employees through benefits such as a tuition reimbursement program, ongoing training, and a career advancement program. Here at Intercare you will find the support, coaching, and training it takes to advance your career and strengthen your leadership skills.
Clinical Career Path
I have been working at Intercare Therapy full-time (Less than a year)
Small company with a family vibe - Great employees ( company luncheons, etc.)
Meaningful work - you are truly making a difference as soon as you are working with clients.
Educational benefits - Intercare Therapy supports its employees who are seeking their next degree.
Good training - the training process is intensive but very valuable.
Analysis - We can analyze our data from therapy sessions to look at the work we have done and what affect the therapy sessions are having on a clients behavior.
In home therapy sessions - therapists must drive to clients homes
Scheduling - due to school hours, most sessions are scheduled during the evening or late afternoon
Advice to Management
In office therapy sessions would benefit certain clients tremendously. I think there are many behavioral issues that are a direct result of a child’s environment. Our job is to give therapy to the children, not to the parents. In many cases the parents will take advantage of your time there with their kid despite your efforts to involve them and the job becomes babysitting rather than therapy.
I applied online. I interviewed at Intercare Therapy (San Jose, CA) in October 2013.
It was very long and unorganzied
