We are looking for a Speech Therapist to take on a rewarding position at a ACUTE FACILITY.

Qualifications:
A fully accredited degree and certification
Ability to practice therapy unencumbered within state regulations and federal guidelines
A passion for working with diverse demographics

Job Description:
Speech-therapists both identify and treat communication problems related to language and speech. Working with patients of all ages, speech-language pathologists seek to improve communication skills through vocal exercises and cognitive therapies. Patients under going treatment with a speech therapist may have an articulation, language, fluency, or resonance disorder, which prevents them from either being understood or understanding others. Speech therapist job opportunities are available in schools, hospitals and private settings and most therapists work full-time.

Speech Language Pathologists can expect to encounter the following:
Speech Disorders
• Articulation - the way we say our speech sounds
• Phonology - the speech patterns we use
• Apraxia - difficulty planning and coordinating the movements needed to make speech sounds
• Fluency - stuttering
• Voice - problems with the way the voice sounds, such as hoarseness
Language Disorders
• Receptive Language - difficulty understanding language
• Expressive Language - difficulty using language
• Pragmatic Language - social communication; the way we speak to each other
Other Disorders
• Deafness/Hearing Loss - loss of hearing; therapy includes developing lip-reading, speech,
and/or alternative communication systems
• Oral-Motor Disorders - weak tongue and/or lip muscles
• Swallowing/Feeding Disorders - difficulty chewing and/or swallowing
