We are looking for a fully Registered Psychologist who has specific knowledge and training in working with and assessing children and adolescents with Autism.

While we have a large clinical referral demand for Autism specific therapy and assessment we encourage those who may not want to work full time to apply as a split position will be considered to meet referral demands. We also provide after hours and Saturday services therefore encourage those who wish to work these hours.

We also provide a full team member and partners inclusive Christmas party each year to end on a high note before our shut down period.
