Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer behavioural tutor with Autism Support UK.
We would be very grateful if you could take a few minutes to complete this short application (Please fully complete all the questions) ***Volunteering can lead to paid work with families attending the club for those that want a career in ABA Therapy.
Our ABA Saturday School is located in Bolton
We are looking for volunteer candidates to be trained up in Applied Behaviour
Analysis, Positive Behaviour support, Autism, Behaviour management
and the science of behaviour change working 1:1 with children with an
Autism Spectrum Condition.
The positions are on Saturdays over a 12 week period.
You will be trained via training days and on the job coaching by Behavioural
supervisors. We provide a minimum of 60 hours for work placement modules
for university students. All trainee volunteer tutors that stay the full term will
receive a certificate of participation & attendance.
You will be working alongside other volunteers and help to support 30
children with Autism ranging between ages 2yrs old to 11 years old.
This will provide you with a rich understanding of the Autism Spectrum. Your
experience will include data collection.
Perfect for anyone who has experience working with children in the childcare
sector or Psychology students/ graduates who want to build upon their skills
and put their psychological theory into real life work & also get some clinical experience.
Many of our volunteers have the opportunity to get paid work through
volunteering at ‘Autism Support UK’ as an ABA therapist with families in schools & on
home programmes, a great way to carve out a career in the psychology field.
We are also looking for volunteer experienced tutors to work as lead therapists (this will be great training for those who are tutors and wish to get more experience in training other tutors and taking more of a lead role) Also we are looking for Volunteer supervisors or BCBA's who wish to give some of their time per month to help out at our ABA Saturday School.
