Depending on the demand in your area, you may not even need any experience at all. It's a good way to get some clinical experience. Plus, the kids are adorable!
You can find ABA (also referred to as IBI) jobs at hospitals, learning centres, and private clinics. There is also the option of self-employment. Good luck!
ABA: Applied Behaviour Analysis
IBI: Intensive Behavioural Intervention
Good suggestion -- residential/community habilitation is a big field with easy-to-get jobs if you have a degree in psychology. You can work with children or adults. Titles might include "skillbuilder," "training specialist," "behavioral therapist," or "habilitation worker."
