Autism Jobs

Autism Job Overview

Autism jobs are found throughout the country. The diagnosis of autism can vary and many children are given the diagnosis early on. This affects how they learn and how they thrive as an adult. As such, there are various autism jobs, such as Teachers, Physical Therapists, Language Pathologists, Development Specialists and more. Anyone can work with autistic individuals. It is simply a matter of being patient and understanding the limitations that the diagnosis creates so that a person can choose the right way to deal with the individual for the purpose of reaching a goal.

Autism Job Education Requirements

Those who want to work in autism jobs need to have experience in behavioral health sciences. Depending upon the scope of the position, it can result in a need to have a degree in early childhood education, occupational therapy and more. A person needs to meet all of the necessary licensing requirements for the state. Those that have more experience dealing with autism specifically in comparison to other learning disabilities will have a greater advantage in the job market simply because many employers want someone who has an understanding of autism.

Autism Job Market

The job market is not as strong for autism jobs as many people would like. It depends specifically on the sector in which a person will be working with those who have autism. According to recent statistics, the job market for these positions within the healthcare industry is increasing. Within the education industry, the job market for such positions is decreasing. This means that a person may have to switch sectors in order to find employment. Candidates may also need to obtain more experience and education in order to become better qualified for the few job openings that may be available in a particular city. Similar occupations to consider include Special Education Teachers and Behavioral Health Counselors.

Autism Job Salary

There are many types of autism jobs available in the market, and the salaries vary widely. Therapists that are specifically focused on working with those who have autism generally earn around $32,000 a year, or $17 an hour. There are also trainers and pathologists that can work with autistic individuals and earn higher salaries of $37,000 a year or more.
