Speech & Language Pathologist (Full-Time)

Rebecca School is looking for a Speech-Language Pathologist for the 2024-2025 school year to provide developmental assessment and therapy in both individual and group settings. At the Rebecca School, sessions can occur in a variety of environments, contexts, and social settings, dependent on each student’s individualized speech and language program. Through collaboration across disciplines, SLPs are able to make modifications to each classroom and therapeutic environment to enhance an individual’s comprehension or capacity to express their ideas.  While language development is always a primary focus of therapy, a developmental approach is also applied towards mealtime and feeding development for our students. Cooking groups, feeding groups, sensory based play, community outings, and field trips are just a few of the many mediums which are utilized by our therapists to connect with and promote enjoyable learning opportunities for each student in relation to their individualized growth.
