Families affected by Autism face one of our community’s greatest challenges: helping their children become healthy, independent and productive members of their communities.

We meet this need by recruiting, training and placing Behavior Therapists with families in Central Massachusetts who are raising children with Autism.  Our Behavior Therapists provide therapies that help children learn important life skills. 

We provide comprehensive training, support, a competitive salary and flexible schedules. You’ll gain career-launching experiences, a jump on your future and the satisfaction of knowing you made a significant difference.

Students for Higher also refers Respite Care Specialists to families who need short-term breaks (called respite).

No matter your career path — whether it’s human services, liberal arts, business or the sciences — you can give a family hope and help a child become the best he or she can be.
