What Sets Us Apart

Working at Arc Human Services


Upon hire, you will be trained and certified by the Pennsylvania Office of Developmental Programs in Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) and Positive Behavioral Supports (PBS). Candidate will receive valuable agency orientation training, as well as certification in first aid/CPR. BSCs receive extensive departmental training and support individualized to their professional needs, based upon previous experience/education. From clerical aspects of the position to how to conduct a thorough behavioral assessment, the BSC receives continued education and in-depth support. In addition to training from clinical leadership, the clinical department is a team of professionals with varying expertise/experience that collaborate often to share information/resources and provide assistance to one another. BSCs also are provided opportunities to attend out of agency trainings to learn/enhance their professional skills.


Services we offer are grounded in the principles of Trauma Informed Care. Our individualized Person-Centered plans are developed in order to provide structure and guidance to the team. Our Master and Bachelor level clinicians will counsel and guide the development of Personal Health and Safety Plans (SEEP), Behavior Support Plan (BSP), Crisis Plans, etc.

Additional supports for the individual come from the Clinical and Supervisory/Administrative members of Arc Human Services, who support the Behavior Specialist Consultant (BSC) and residential teams. We provide clinical supervision, guidance, mentoring and leadership to ensure the individual’s and team’s needs are properly processed.


All members of leadership within the Clinical Department have been internally promoted from the position of BSC. The BSC position offers extensive exposure to other departments/careers within ARC and the opportunity to seek advancement or opportunities throughout the agency.


Many are often diagnosed with or are presenting features found in Axis II mental health disorders and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). They are among the most challenging dually-diagnosed individuals supported by our IDD and MH systems.
