Hello There Hybrid Service
School Psychology Jobs and SLP Jobs in Schools in Oregon: Portland, Beaverton, Salem, Eugene, and Bend
School districts throughout Oregon depend on us to provide onsite and telepractice therapy to kids in their schools. Our Hello There hybrid teletherapy model allows districts to benefit from highly qualified specialists, even if they are unable to find them in their own community.
The Hello There model combines the best of both worlds: monthly on-site visits paired with daily online services. Teletherapy is an effective and efficient way to deliver direct services to students, but nothing replaces a specialist working in the building when it comes to collaboration with teachers, school staff, and families. That’s why we developed our innovative Hello There hybrid telepractice model. Our SLPs and school psychs will train and supervise aides, write lesson plans, provide direct and consultative services to students, complete compliance paperwork, hold and attend meetings, and otherwise develop a wealth of institutional knowledge.
We have been providing teletherapy and working remotely since 2009 – long before COVID prompted online instruction around the world.
Because we’ve had years of experience, we’ve honed the art of meeting the needs of students remotely. We’ve leveraged the benefits of teletherapy, allowing special education teams to work with highly skilled therapists to address special education needs. Our therapists train and supervise aides, and provide lesson plans as well as consultative feedback from a wealth of institutional knowledge. Additionally, they’ll complete compliance paperwork, hold and attend meetings, and the following:
- Providing or supervising therapy via streaming video
- Planning therapy for students
- Providing regular consultations and feedback with team members
- Attending meetings by video or conference call
- Communicating with families and staff as needed via phone, video, or email
Traditional, on-site therapy services will be provided by the most experienced SLPs, SLPAs, OTs, and school psychologists in the industry.
The Hello Foundation provides on-site therapists and school psychs to districts throughout Oregon. In-person duties include:
- Meeting with students
- Supporting teachers and paraprofessionals
- Completing evaluations, screenings, and observations
- Meeting with parents and staff
- Providing training and in-service, as needed
- Consulting with general and special education staff
You Can Work Anywhere: Here’s Why You Should Work With Us
At The Hello Foundation, we focus on a culture of professional development – fostering a commitment to growth for one another and the kids we serve. Additionally, we act as an advocate between the district and the clinician, handling any issues or challenges that may arise so that you are able to focus on serving the kids.
In a nutshell: You decide your criteria for work. You drive the process of choosing a placement that fits your needs. You interview with the district and decide whether to accept the position. You’re the one in charge. And you get great benefits, paid time off, and fun social interaction. If you’re looking for preschool SLP jobs or educational psychology jobs, contact us to learn more.
All our clinicians are either salaried or hourly employees with full benefits offered for enrollment: 401k, medical, dental, and vision, whether you are a full or part-time employee.
*minimum hours are required
Independent contracting isn’t our scene
Paid Time Off
Time away is important for a healthy work-life balance, which is why everyone who works at Hello has no-questions-asked paid time off.
Your work life isn’t your whole life
All Hello Foundation employees have access to flexible spending accounts for medical expenses, childcare, voluntary supplemental benefits through UNUM, and our employee assistance plan.
Life often throws us curveballs, which can be expensive.
The Hello Foundation was started by an SLP who knew she shouldn’t have to choose between caring for her own child and caring for her students. Today, nearly two decades later, ⅔ of our Leadership Team are practicing clinicians.
Founded by a clinician and still in our DNA
Affordable and high-quality continuing education hours can be tough to come by. We provide 8 hours of free, in-house PD for our specialists annually and use clinician input for topics and speakers.
Professional development is built-in
Advocacy & Support
All Hello Foundation employees have access to our award-winning, confidential intranet, peer collaboration, and problem-solving at monthly Group Shares. We also offer advocacy with your district from a dedicated Hello Foundation supervisor.
You shouldn’t have to do it alone
Fun & Games
We love sending special treats to our people (say hello to gift cards for no reason), and we host special events and fun parties, too!
Life should be fun!
