Full-time Speech Language Pathologist

If you are interested in applying to this position, please email your resume to our director jesssica@leapsandsounds.org

Leaps and Sounds Pediatric Rehabilitation is a non-profit pediatric outpatient rehabilitation clinic which serves children 0-21. We are located in the heart of Geauga county on The Chardon Square. Our organization was founded and continues to be operated by a speech-language pathologist which means the focus is on the therapists and the children we serve; not big-business. As a small organization, we can maximize our positive effects on the community and build an excellent program for our employees. With no red tape to fight, we focus on what matters.  Currently we offer comprehensive speech-language services, occupational therapy services and feeding therapy. At this time, we are looking to expand our SLP program by adding a full-time (40 hours) Speech-Language Pathologist. Those with CCCs or those needing to complete their CFY welcome to apply.. 

 

The Clinic: Our clinic works off the medical model, meaning children come 30-45 minutes per session, generally 1-2x/week. Their caregivers are engaged and present in the sessions and take an active role to collaborate in the treatments and home programming. Through this joint-effort and one-on-one intervention, our therapists can really see the impact they are making as evidenced by skills growth. We do our own evaluations and are not restricted to the rules that are common with the county or school systems (ie. IEPs). Each therapist has access to private treatment rooms,  a shared sensory gym and a library of games and materials. All clinical tools are paid for by the clinic and our director is always open to expanding upon materials.To learn more about our clinic, please visit www.leapsandsounds.org.
