The field of Behavior Analysis is wide open at this time. Applied Behavior Analysis is one of the most successful treatments for autism and many in the field are involved. It is a fascinating way to work with autistic kids and most jobs pay quite well.

I know that the University of South Florida, the University of North Texas and the University of Oregon all have programs for this specialty. There are others, but these are the ones I know about.

You can also go into teaching. There are many universities with special ed programs.

You can become a teacher, then get a master’s in sp. education, or if you aren’t into higher education, schools always need aides to help the teachers in the classrooms. There might be 1 teacher and 1-4 aides. Speech therapy has a shortage of people.
