Mr. Michael Ray
Hiring Manager
River Street Autism Program
Coltsville 34 Sequassen Street
Hartford, CT 06106


Dear Mr. Ray:

I read your advertisement about the vacancy for a Behavior Therapist at River Street Autism Program. Eager to apply, I realized that I am an ideal contender for this job because my qualifications perfectly aligns with your job description.

Some of my key competencies relevant to a behavior therapist position with your facility include:

❖ 2 years’ work experience with Trumpet Behavioral Health Gilbert Autism Center as an ABA therapist.

❖ M.S. Psychology from California State University.

❖ Extensive knowledge of modern ABA therapy techniques.

❖ Good judgment and decision-making acumen.

Furthermore, I am well-versed in providing high-quality, discipline-specific treatment for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), developmental delays and disabilities. My ability to provide 1:1 specialized behavior intervention services to children, and parent education will be a real asset to your organization.

After reading my enclosed resume, you will know a little bit about my background. Yet you will still need to conclude whether I have the passion for making a difference as a Behavior Therapist. I’d like an interview to discuss my potential to make meaningful contribution to your mission.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to meeting with you soon.


Truly yours,

Elena Jane
