Why Join the Great Speech Team?
Over the last six plus years, we have seen numerous therapists evolve from traditional brick-and-mortar therapists to innovative, energetic and dedicated online speech therapists. During our enrollment process, the online speech therapist will participate in a hands-on training session, video conference tutorial and receive an invitation to observe various diverse sessions. The newly enrolled online speech therapist will be privy to a behind the scenes look into the online speech therapy world.
Great Speech therapists can access our comprehensive library of materials and therapy tools, proprietary online portal and team leaders that are available to collaborate with. We know that life gets busy and hectic, so we offer both our clients and therapists automated text and email reminders prior to sessions to ensure minimal disruptions in the schedule.
Our online speech therapists appreciate having a diverse caseload which can range from articulation issues to more complex unique disorders. Our therapists do not exclusively serve one demographic, they typically see both pediatric and adult clients ranging from ages 5 – 85 and beyond. Our therapists can see students who attend brick-and-mortar schools or are learning through a virtual model, community centers or privately at home. Therapists have direct contact with families and caregivers and establish close connections. Alternatively, therapists can be working with adults or seniors in their home, office, through community outreach programs and in some cases even penitentiaries.
Through our proprietary match making process, we ensure success by matching the right kind of client with the right online speech therapist that will help the clients reach their ultimate communication goals. Once a match is made with a client and the online speech therapist, they will work together through the tenure of the program. We value work-life balance, and therefore our online speech therapists are autonomous in scheduling sessions according to their availability at a time that is mutually convenient for the client.
Online speech therapists that are looking to grow professionally and develop leadership and supervisory skills enjoy the opportunities presented to them at Great Speech. Supervisors mentor new online speech therapists by observing sessions, providing feedback, helping with material selection, and offer clinical support as needed. In addition to clinical support, Great Speech also has a designated administrative team, whose role is to be a liaison between the clients and the therapists and ensure that the therapists can focus on solely on direct intervention. If the need arises, our friendly and competent tech support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
