Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Speech Language Pathologist

A truly unique opportunity for a licensed pediatric therapist or educator to practice in a cross-disciplinary, team-driven, and supportive work environment. The Parenting Place is hiring 1 full-time or 2 part-time Early Interventionists to provide Birth to 3 services to families in La Crosse and Vernon Counties. As part of an Early Interventionist team (including PT, OT, Early Childhood Special Education, and Speech Language Pathologist professionals), you will work with colleagues and the child’s adults to develop and track progress towards developmental goals, serving as a Primary Coach for about 25 (full-time caseload) of our 180 enrolled families. Research shows children develop best by learning from a familiar caregiver, through daily routines in their everyday environment, thus Birth to 3 providers work with families in their homes, with an emphasis on coaching the child’s adults so that developmental or adaptive work can occur throughout the day, every day, with the child’s normal routines. Strong candidates will have a passion for using their professional expertise to work with families on an ongoing basis in ways that cannot be achieved in a traditional clinical setting. This position involves flexibility in scheduling and could include weekend/evening work for a part-time staffer. Some telehealth is offered to participants. Current WI licensure in your particular discipline is required. Send resume or inquiries to marilynhuckenpoehler@theparentingplace.net
