The Behaviour Team Leader is an experienced Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA). The Team Leader has direct responsibility for the clinical programming for clients on their caseload, including day-to-day supervision and training of behaviour therapists. They are also directly responsible for providing independent fieldwork supervision for TMB team members that require supervision. They are responsible for overseeing yearly staff training programs. Team Leaders are members of the TMB Leadership Team, and have broader responsibilities in delivering the Strategic Initiatives of the organisation.
The Program Supervisor is an experienced behaviour clinician with a Master’s Degree in Education with an ABA focus or a Master’s of ABA and/or a BCBA or BCaBA. Our Program Supervisors are most directly responsible for the clinical programming for clients on their caseload, including day-to-day supervision and training of behaviour therapists who implement ABA therapy programs for the clients on their caseload. They may also assist with delivering organisation-wide training, development of new client group programs and annual quality assurance and improvement projects.
The Speech Pathologist role perfectly suits experienced clinicians who wish to take on a new and exciting challenge. This role allows clinicians to develop their skill set with a diverse range of clients, including autistic children and adults, clients using AAC and clients with multiple and complex communication support needs. Our Speech Pathologists receive frequent regular support and mentoring from our Speech Team Leader and our Clinical Director. Support includes weekly 1:1 meetings, overlaps, fortnightly didactic training sessions and regular video reviews. Our Speech Pathologists receive extensive training in applying Positive Behaviour Support strategies. TMB Speech Pathologists have direct responsibility for the intervention programs for clients on their caseload. Wherever possible, caseloads are selected based on reported experience/confidence of particular presentations/diagnoses, as well as identified development goals. However, clinicians in this role may expect to take on clients outside their ‘comfort zone’, which they will share with their supervisors, so they can further grow as clinicians.
They may also assist with delivering organisation-wide training, development of new client group programs and annual quality assurance and improvement projects.
*Early Career Speech Pathologists with experience working with autistic children, in ABA programs or as behaviour support practitioners may also be suited to this role.
