Balance Autism is seeking Clinic Director candidate for our clinic in Iowa City, Iowa.
The Children's Autism Project
Balance Autism's Children's Autism Project is a clinic-based service providing one-on-one, direct Applied Behavior Analysis services for young children with autism. This program was developed in collaboration with Iowa Medicaid and serves as a model program for the state. Balance Autism opened the first clinic for ABA services in 2010 in Altoona, Iowa and has recently expanded in Des Moines, as well as into Iowa City due to heavy demand. This is an exciting time to consider relocation to Iowa to become a part of this program that is changing autism services in the state.
