The Center for Social Dynamics (CSD) is an organization providing services to those with developmental delays, including autism, in the state of California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, and Hawaii.

Its more than a job, its a calling.


You embody our mission & values by being there for our clients, their family, and your fellow clinicians. With a supportive approach, you offer short-term, urgent behavioral health solutions that are positive, effective, and client-driven.


Under general BCBA supervision, a Behavior Specialist uses the strategies of Applied Behavior Analysis to provide direct 1:1 therapy for skill acquisition and behavior reduction to clients in a gentle, center-based environment. Through the use of evidence-based behavioral interventions, including crisis prevention protocols, you are able to effectively diffuse often tense situations while maintaining the therapeutic relationship.
