Community Services for Autistic Adults and Children, Inc (CSAAC) is a private, non-profit agency that provides direct services to children and adults diagnosed with autism across their lifespan. They typically employ 20-30 technicians, many of whom are interns. The number of interns they are able to accommodate at a given time varies. Interns work directly with young children who are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. The children range in age from 2 years old to 11 years old. Interns are trained to work as technicians implementing ABA-based programs. Once they are fully trained they are responsible for implementing a child’s treatment plan during one-to-one sessions at the child’s home or school. Interns also attend a regularly scheduled clinic meeting with each child’s treatment team and the psychologist in order to review progress and advance the child’s program. Interns are paid, even during training. The rate is $10 per hour during training, and then it increases. Given the lengthy training program, CSAAC asks for a commitment of at least 9 months. They are usually able to work around interns’ class schedules. Interns work between 6 and 18 hours per week depending on availability.

However, most or all services occur in each child’s home and/or school. Most locations are not metro accessible, and based off of previous student experiences, a car is necessary for this position.
