Employment Opportunities

We provide services at our center-based facility, in several satellite clinics, and in community-based facilities. Our center-based program employs a cutting-edge transdisciplinary play-based model of special education. The hallmark of this philosophy is the close collaboration which takes place between special education teachers, occupational and physical therapists, speech language pathologists and social service professionals. Considerable time is set aside for team meetings and staff development to ensure that the benefits of our trans-disciplinary approach are fully realized. Satellite clinic, community and home-based services provide therapists with the opportunity to work closely with children and families in environments familiar to them and in the communities in which they live.

"I really like working here. I have the opportunity to see a program grow and to put my stamp on it. I feel valued and supported and trusted. I'm well-paid in a field that doesn't pay very well and my opinions are sought out and followed up on. I've met a lot of tremendously skilled and talented staff here, with great spirit, who are really good at what they do and have made strong connections with children and families."
