Position Description:

The Behavioral Specialist Consultant (BSC) is to identify behavioral goals, design appropriate interventions, and supervise the implementation of a behavior modification plan that is tailored to the specific needs of the client and family.

The goal is to provide clinical mental health interventions through the use of behavior modification that will enable the client to be maintained and function appropriately in the least restrictive environment.

The Mobile Therapist (MT) is to provide the most appropriate therapeutic interventions of clients and their families across all environments. These settings include, but are not limited to, home, school, activity center, church, neighbor or extended family home.
