“ABA Works provided me with valuable job experience, supervised BBS hours, as well as several career advancement opportunities (Direct Interventionist, Supervisor, and Trainer). During my time with the company, I developed valuable skills in ABA principles that afforded me the opportunity to see tremendous growth and skill acquisition in the incredible families that I served.”
Rocio Zumaeta, MS, MFTi
“Lilyan was awesome at teaching me how to work with both the kids and the parents. I didn’t realize then how relevant the work I was doing was going to be for me in the field even now. I grew so much in my time with ABA Works and I am so thankful I took on the challenge of trying something new. I felt supported all the way through and apply things I learned years ago to this very day! Not a day goes by where I don’t miss the kids and families I learned and grew with! Don’t pass up this amazing opportunity to work for a company as awesome as ABA Works!”

“ABA Works [sister company of ABA Center] offered me excellent training and many opportunities to grow. The Clinical Director, Lilyan Campbell, is like my mentor. She is patient and knowledgeable. She offers employees so many opportunities and freedom to grow. She is open-minded and supportive to her employees. She has taught me a lot of skills and suggested me to continue my education as a MFT. If you are looking for opportunities to grow your professional skills in your career, this agency is definitely a great place to consider. You will be receiving great training plus earning your internship hours for your license.”

“I had an opportunity to work for ABA Works for approximately ten months. Since I started, the company has grown tremendously. I observed more and more highly skilled and passionate individuals joining ABA Works along the way. Although I have had experience working with individuals with special needs, it was my first job as a Direct Interventionist. I was drawn by company’s holistic approach: we developed trusting and warm relationship with families, focused on families as a whole, taking into consideration families’ goals and needs and empowered each available member of a household with various ABA techniques and strategies. As we all know consistency is a key.
I was very impressed by company’s interest to educate its employees. Both, direct interventionists and supervisors go through intense training to ensure we are successful and efficient in our sessions. As a new DI, I always had lots of questions. My supervisors were available during overlap sessions (and beyond) to answer those, explain everything thoroughly, model how to run programs I was not sure about and provide help I needed.
One of my favorite parts of working for ABA Works was that about every few months we had seminars. During those seminars we discussed various topics, usually focusing on two-three the most urgent and significant ones. Prior the seminars, Direct Interventionists were surveyed about areas of difficulties in the sessions or subjects we would like to expand our knowledge on. Our director and supervisors would make sure to address those topics through presentations. We would also have discussions with fellow Interventionists in groups as well as role play to exercise and strengthen our skills. These seminars were a great opportunity to meet colleagues, get and provide feedback regarding each other’s performance, inspire and motivate each other.
The job required an extensive amount of dedication and creativity. At times, it could get demanding but of course was always very rewarding. The director Lilyan and supervisors were there for us to identify our challenges and reinforce our strengths in order to help us to be better therapists. Furthermore, there is a great chance to grow in the company, which was very important for me. It is an amazing career opportunity for those who are self-motivated, always eager to learn and would like to make a difference.”
