The New England Center for Children was endorsed by EOE Journal, a national equal opportunity advocacy media outlet. This endorsement is significant as NECC continues to foster a diverse, welcoming community. This community extends beyond the staff and teachers, to include the students, their families and donors.

“As an agency, we benefit from the varied perspectives that come with a more diverse workforce,” says Clinical Director Jessica Sassi, PhD, BCBA-D, LABA. “We see the many benefits of diversity in increased creativity and problem solving, as well as improved employee satisfaction and engagement.  We are excited to be recognized for this.” 

Beyond providing an inclusive, diverse workplace, NECC also presents a number of unique opportunities for professionals in the autism education field.

“One of our top priorities as an organization is the professional development of our staff – we believe that the best way to serve the autism community is through the development of highly skilled, compassionate professionals.  At NECC, you are surrounded by enthusiastic, mission-driven staff. It’s a great place to work for people at all stages in their careers,” says Sassi.
