Why the Role
The role of the assessment co-ordinator is focused on conducting, managing, and organising with families and centres, intake, 12-month and exit assessments of children and families at our AEIOU centres. Assessments may include the Mullen Scales of Early Learning (MSEL), Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule: Second Edition (ADOS-2), Preschool Language Scales: Fifth Edition, as well as questionnaires (e.g., Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales, Second Edition) completed by parents.

- maintaining and entering assessment data into a database of results.

You come equipped with a Bachelor degree (honours) in psychology, special education or allied health and eligible for a Blue Card.
You are experienced in working with young children and conducting assessments.
You are happy to travel to our centres across Queensland and South Australia.
