Do you want the OPPORTUNITY to shape and design the delivery of your Speech Therapy services?
We are seeking a full-time, experienced, brain-based pediatric Speech Language Pathologist to join our amazing team of pediatric Occupational Therapists to help our families grow and thrive!
The ideal candidate will have a heart big enough to see the struggling child behind the behaviors and learning challenges, to see the worried Mom behind all of the questions she’s asking, and to see the concerned father behind the brave face.

- Is creative
- Understands the importance of collaborative problem-solving
- Takes joy in helping clients make measurable progress
- Is a natural educator and enjoys sharing for the benefit of parents, clients, and fellow team members
- Is a natural marketer and is social media savvy
- Can speak on camera
If the above sounds like you and and you want the autonomy to treat clients they way you know is best, please read on for details about what this position will entail. And don’t let the long list intimidate you – you will have support!
BEING SUCCESSFUL IN THIS POSITION WILL INVOLVE:
- Listening. Parents have much to say and rarely feel heard.
- Evaluating. Our Clients often elude traditional diagnoses and labels. We dig deep to find the root of the challenges.
- Communicating. Gently and frequently communicating with family members regarding the signs and indications of progress in their child.
- Educating. Our knowledge and language is foreign to most parents. They need someone to tell them what has been happening with their child, what we intend to do about it, what to expect and when to expect it, and what they should do. And they need it in a language that they can understand.
- Administering and modifying. Your treatment techniques should be appropriate, valid, gradable, and effective.
- Assessing. Constant assessment of the efficacy of your treatment, in the moment of administering it, and in the moments, hours, and sometimes days that follow it.
- Reacting. Taking a corrective detour when a session isn’t going the way you intended, expected, or hoped for.
- Measuring. Measurable goals allow us to know if we are making a difference.
- Preparing. Constant preparation for graduation from our treatment allows families to feel better prepared when that bittersweet day comes that their child has met their goals and they are free to live a life without therapy appointments!
- Documenting: effective documentation is clear, concise, measurable, and explanatory. (And we have streamlined processes to make it easier!)
- Sharing: share the value of what you do so that more families can be helped.
This will be a somewhat flexible position with room to meet your lifestyle needs and desires. We offer competitive and creative compensation packages including an hourly range between $40-55, bonuses, PTO, and other considerations for you to choose from, based upon your desired work schedule, responsibilities, and lifestyle.
Come use your knowledge and skills to their maximum potential as you continue to grow in the field of Speech Therapy!
