Three and a half years ago, Autism Family Center opened in Winnetka, IL. We launched the center to bring a multidisciplinary approach to the Behavior Analysis field. In the years since, we have created a unique therapeutic program run by a team of innovative, energetic, and talented professionals. 


Building our program in Winnetka has been an amazing opportunity. But now we are excited to move on to the next big project. In 2017, Autism Family Center will begin an exciting project to bring AFC to more families. We aim to open locations all over Illinois and the surrounding states. 



AFC now needs to build a corporate team prepared to create and execute the strategy necessary to open multiple centers each year. Because we will be the first corporate team at Autism Family Center, we need diverse group with a willingness to jump in anywhere needed. 


Director of Marketing

Autism Family Center is looking for a marketing guru to develop a strategy for wide spread, rapid growth. However, it is important to us to keep the integrity of the community brand we have built. We need a team player who is ready to take an active role in the launch of our biggest project yet. You will be responsible for creating and implementing the strategy. And, eventually, you will manage a team of support staff. We need someone with a strong background who can also use the most current and relevant tools to target the population we serve. It wouldn't hurt to have a great sense of humor and an interest in air hockey.
