Clinical Director – ABA

Colorado Springs,CO, USA

Company Description

MGA Behavior Therapy was built upon the notion that children who require various forms of therapies deserve to get them in a timely, convenient manner. We also believe in quality and focus on proven results from highly educated and trained practitioners.
Over time, MGA Homecare, our parent organization, observed an increasing amount of medically complex children who require speech, physical, and occupational therapy. To keep serving these children adequately and add ABA therapy to our line of offerings, we saw the need to open MGA Behavior Therapy.
Now, all therapy is housed together where a team of therapists can work together to better serve patients. It’s convenience for you, but most of all, it’s quality care for your child.

If you are seeking a rewarding career opportunity with a growing healthcare company that values its employees and patients, then apply now to join the MGA family!
