The Arc Central Chesapeake Region supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) to live, work, and connect with their community.

People are complex. We are each made of thousands of different experiences that can affect mental, physical, and emotional well-being. Here at The Arc, we take the time to understand these experiences and their relationship to behavioral health. As a Behavioral Health Associate, you will use a holistic approach to create an environment that encourages daily success for people we support.

The Behavioral Health Associate will report to the Director of Behavioral Health and will work collaboratively with a licensed Behavioral Health Clinician, persons served, and their teams to support data collection, development, and implementation of behavioral support plans. The associate provides training on behavioral supports, models techniques, maintains clinical notes, and provides feedback on observations to clinicians. The associate is an essential, active member of the Behavioral Health team whose ability to remain flexible, calm under pressure, and to work autonomously with little direction will make them a highly valued, solutions-oriented member of the team.

The ideal candidate for this position will reflect The Arc’s core values, quickly integrate into The Arc, and embrace our trauma-informed care-based therapies. Candidates must possess a bachelor’s degree in psychology, social work, or applied behavioral analysis as well as one or more years of professional experience providing behavioral supports to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. They will have a passion for person-centered planning and self-direction for people with disabilities. The salary is $23.50/hour with paid professional development and continued education, as well as a competitive benefit package.
