Spaulding Academy & Family Services is looking for individuals who want to be inspired every day, who want to make a positive impact on the lives of our exceptional students every day, and who are looking to build a rewarding career.
Our Residential team is seeking a Residential Assistant to support students, ages 4 to 21 years old, with neurological impairments that include autism, intellectual disabilities, emotional disorders and behavioral challenges or those who have experienced significant trauma, abuse or neglect.
Prior experience working with developmentally and/or emotionally challenged individuals is preferred, but we are willing to train individuals looking for a career that will change lives. Applicants are required to be 21 years of age and have a high school diploma or GED.
Successful applicants must be:
- Compassionate, reliable and have a high level of personal integrity;
- Able to learn to consistently follow through with treatment strategies to help our students achieve success;
- CPR/First Aid, Professional Crisis Management and other trauma-focused certifications are required, but can be obtained through Spaulding training programs.
Primary responsibility of the Residential Assistant is to provide direct care and supervision to students during the non-school hours. By implementing residential objectives and behavioral support plans, you will teach daily living skills, community integration and socialization to our students as well as participating and engaging students in all residential activities.
