Lead Therapeutic Instructors (Lead TIs)

Each classroom, or program, is supported by a Lead Therapeutic Instructor. These are salaried employees that provide direct one-on-one service and spend additional time focusing on data collection and the provision of support for the Special Education Teacher or Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) that manages the classroom or program that they work within. In addition to the TI training, Spectra Lead TIs hold a Substitute Teaching License, which provides the opportunity for shared teaching, when needed.

Many possible career advancements include working toward a licensed position, (e.g. teacher or clinician / related service provider) through advanced university courses, supervision and fieldwork hours.

Spectra teachers are part of a dynamic team of educators and related service providers who carry out the Interdisciplinary Intervention Model.

Practicum and student teaching opportunities are offered based upon availability.

Both Spectra Autism Center and Spectra School are supported by the Interdisciplinary Intervention Model team approach and includes four positions: Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), Occupational Therapist (OT), Mental Health Therapist (Psychologist or Social Worker), and Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP). These clinicians/related service providers have salaried, year-round positions and a balanced schedule that includes 63% direct client / student services either inside or outside of the classrooms.
