Poor management and potentially unethicalpractices
I worked them for a while when just starting out so I didn't know any better. It was also a while ago so things may have changed. I found the management to be poor at multiple levels. Lead therapist, and top management. Senior therapists were overworked but were good regardless. I felt like sometimes parents were paying for 1:1 therapy but were getting 2:1 in reality with no consent given.
It was definitely more of a business to them than an ABA centre.

Company does not take care of their employees
This company values revenue over everything, on days with icy rain and dangerous road conditions, they still want you to come in. They let kids come in when they are sick, consequentially infecting staff who then go home to infect their families. Fleas, colds flues. They clearly do not care about their employees safeties.
Extremely and unethically low starting salary + if you quit within the first year, you have to pay them back the cost of their training. Starting salary does not cover the cost of living in the area.

You don't get any benefits when you're starting out, and when you eventually do get health benefits, you also have to pay for it.

Management takes a long time to set you up with your own tools, instead you'll be spending time bothering others to use their tools while you still don't have your own.

On top of all this, the job is a stressful one, by no means a relaxing job with kids, and you have to follow very strict standards, all of which are not worth the low wage and no benefits, and even sometimes risking your life to go to work because they won't give days off when roads are in dangerous conditions, so you either suck it up and hope you don't die or you call in sick and not get paid.

Amazing work with awesome clients and the best management
I love my job! The pay is pretty much the worst, but I don't get up each day for a pay check. I get up and work because I love how Portia delivers therapy. I love my kids and I feel respected and appreciated by my boss. Don't get into therapy for they pay. Do it for the love of kids. Do it because you think everyone should have a chance to learn.

High-intensity, rewarding-but-underpaid job
I learned a ton working for this organization! It was both incredibly rewarding and challenging working one-on-one with kids on the autism spectrum. Helping them to progress through their programs was exciting and interesting.
Given how demanding the work was, it's disappointing that the organization pays most of their employees just-above minimum wage. They do provide training, but the job is not easy and could be compensated more fairly.

Be Mentally Prepared
Overral working there is a learning experience, but if you are not mentally nor emotionally prepared for a challenge, I wouldn't to into this work field . The kids you work with are great, you create a wonderful bond with them but its not always roses and peaches which is expected. The management team needs a lot of work done that was really the only downfall that I did not like.
Points positifs
The kids, good hours
Points négatifs
Management

Left after a few weeks
I worked here for a few weeks, the staff were all very helpful and nice but also quite cliquey. The wage just wasn't worth it. I was thrown into things I was not properly trained to do, which is fine because I don't mind helping but also not fair to the kids.

Good First Job!
This was my first job in the field of ABA. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here, and miss it terribly! It was a hard job, but a fair job, and I think the hardest part was being able to get the support needed when learning new techniques.

Not the best but you will learn
Overall poor work culture very little regard for employees but the work is good and the progress the clients can make is rewarding. They are quickly growing in numbers and trying to improve upon some things.

Portia
The wages aren't competitive, but it's a great place to go and get training from if you have little experience in the field. The staff are very supportive and are willing to help you learn anything you inquire about. The management on the other hand is not supportive of mental health needs or letting staff know that are appreciated in any way. The senior therapists are the most supportive out of all management and they truly care about seeing you succeed. Very high turn over rate which can be hard on the children that are supported there.

Professional and fun work environment
While working at The Portia Learning Centre I learned just how challenging it was working one on one with children with autism spectrum disorder. The hardest part of the job for me personally was never giving up even when faced with challenges. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing I was making a difference in the lives of the children I was working with and also their families. The Portia Learning Centre is a good place to work; it is both professional and fun even though incredibly challenging at times.
Points positifs
Incredibly rewarding work: when clients reach goals, make progress, etc.
Points négatifs
Incredibly challenging work: emotionally, mentally, and physically.

Poorly Organized
As a student, I saw that this centre was a very unorganized environtment with minimal supervision and training for incoming employees working with children

good place to begin working in the IBI feild
Working here I have gotten to know great coworkers, and gained rewarding job experience in the ABA/IBI working field. The job can be challenging at times, but more rewarding to see the children's success and the family's gratitude in their child's accomplishments.
