Section 28 Behavioral Health Professional (BHP)

Portland, ME, USA
Part-Time / Per Diem
$30 Per Hour

Looking for those that want to make a difference in a young person’s life!

If you enjoy working with children and teens, and helping them to improve their lives through their sense of self-worth, their relationships, and by fostering a genuine therapeutic bond with them, this could be the place for you!

Behavioral Health Professionals work directly with children and teens with Autism Spectrum Disorders, developmental disabilities, or cognitive limitations in their homes and in the community. BHP’s work independently providing one-to-one support services to children, and are a vital part of a collaborative team to help children develop life, social, safety, and behavioral skills.

We look forward to continuing to build a strong CATT Associates team.
