Learning ARTS – Why Work With Us?


We are always looking for passionate people in the fields of BCBAs, BCBA-D, Psychologists, Behavior Specialists and Technicians.

Vision Statement

Provide Therapeutic Services to Families with Children diagnosed within the Autism Spectrum and Provide Training, Education Assistance, and Opportunity to Individuals who Provide These Therapeutic Services.

 

Outreach to Ethiopia

Hanna Wolde, M.S., BCBA and our Clinical Director, recently visited Ethiopia. It was an absolute pleasure for her to visit Nehemiah Autism Center in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and meeting the wonderful director, staff, and all the children in the autism spectrum disorder. Nehemiah is a non-profit organization who provides instruction, care, emotional support, counseling, and guidance to the children and families they serve. There is no option for Specialized Instruction or Special Education in the public and private schools in Addis Ababa; and therefore, the center serves as their primary and only educational setting. Without the center, who can only accommodate/serve 40 children at the time of our visit, these children would have been cared for by their families at home without any opportunity for school instruction or to socialize with anyone outside of their home.

Comprehensive ABA Treatment
Comprehensive programs are interventions that are between 30-40 hours per week of direct ABA intervention, plus hours for supervision, management, and caregiver training. This does not include school or other services that may be provided, just the ABA intervention. Comprehensive programs are supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) or a Board Certified Behavior Analyst - Doctorate (BCBA-D). Individual programs are supervised by Program Managers and Behavior Specialists. Direct work is done by the Registered Behavior Technician/Behavior Technicians and for a detailed description, see the BACB guidelines for more information on Comprehensive ABA Treatment.

Focused ABA Treatment
Focused programs are for specific skill development or behavior reduction. They are generally 10-25 hours per week, but may be more than 25 hours if behaviors are extreme or require additional consideration. For a detailed description, see the BACB guidelines for more information on Comprehensive ABA Treatment.

Parent Training
Parent training will be part of any program, but can also be an intervention unto itself. Parent training interventions focus on bringing caregivers up to speed and giving them the skills to actively participate in intervention. Parent Training can be provided in a group or individual setting. Group trainings usually meet in a clinic/instructional setting and are between 15-20 hours over a several week period. Individual parent training is generally 1-2 hours per week.

Social Skills Training
Social Skills Training is a type of Focused ABA intervention, but it is done in groups to assist in social skill development. Social Skills Training may also be part of an individual Comprehensive or individual Focused program.

Learning ARTS offers a wide variety of services to best meet the needs of the community of children within the autism spectrum and their families. Programs differ in purpose, duration, intensity, staffing and philosophical orientation.

All programs begin with an intensive assessment to determine initial skill level, behavioral challenges and an appropriate beginning for the Learning ARTS programs.

    I worked at Learning ARTS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company as a whole provides a very large amount of training to their staff that you can carry through out your ABA career. You will find this a rare attribute of other companies.

    I tell every Behavior tech I work with that is aspiring to be a BCBA to apply to Learning Arts because they gave me a substantial foundation for success. They teach you correct techniques, fluency, and broaden your knowledge in the field of ABA. There are some brilliant people to learn from. This career move is worth every bit of your time...

    Cons

    I do not have a con for this company. This career is not for everyone. You have to have a passion to work in this field, but it is the most rewarding career move I have ever made. this is "life work" . not just a job.

    Behavior Therapist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Learning ARTS (Roseville, CA).

    Interview

    The interview went well but the orientation was a miserable experience. Management only allotted me four hours to complete my orientation but the two boys working the front desk didn't set me up with on a website for a certification number in the morning like they were supposed to so I had to get through it later in the day and it pushed back my ability to finish the orientation on the computer. This caused my orientation to take longer than four hours and the boy clerk told H.R. I "refused" to sign out which is a total lie. Big waste of time and money to try and secure employment with a company who looks like they run a dog shelter instead of rehabilitation center for mentally disabled children. Don't recommend anything about this company for anyone.
