Rewarding Careers in Autism Therapy
The choice to become a therapist usually stems from an inherent desire to support people - to improve their quality of life, help them meet their goals and, ultimately, make a difference in their lives.
An Aspect Therapy career will let you live out those desires.
Whether in small steps or big leaps, we know we’ve played a critical part in changing the lives of children and adults on the autism spectrum. And that is what our 200+ strong Aspect Therapy team is all about.
What does an Aspect Therapy career look like?
At Aspect Therapy we set a realistic goal of supporting three to four people a day. This is lower than most organisations, we know. But we also know that, by doing this, you have more time to discover the unique strengths and aspirations of the people we support. We also have more time to reflect and plan. And more time to implement high-quality, effective solutions.
Supporting up to four people a day also creates a healthy work-life balance, which is promoted, respected and encouraged at Aspect.
We’re proud of our unwavering philosophy focused on a person-centred, strength-based approach. We know you’ll love working in an environment that truly celebrates neurodiversity.
