About our company:
 
Based in Everett, WA., Clear Speech Incorporated delivers high quality, individualized therapies in a natural environment setting. By using environment as a therapy tool, our staff delivers intervention that attends to the whole child and includes the family at every step. Throughout our 20-year history, we have served children ages 6 months to 25 years, in the areas of dysphasia, apraxia, discoordination disorder, autism, receptive/expressive language disorders, phonological disorders, stuttering, sensory processing disorder, and auditory processing.
 
At Clear Speech, Incorporated staff are cross-trained to increase appreciation of each field, and strengthen the support system we offer our clients. Our goal is to continue growing with the viewpoint of the consumer as the best possible place to receive treatment should the need arise. In the past year, we have doubled our staff and we are excited about the opportunity to add more.
 
Note: These occupational Therapist and Physical Therapist positions are new. We are expanding into these two areas at the request of our clients who would like to receive multiple therapies at one site rather than drive to another, separate clinic.

The expectation of our employees is to make the biggest gains possible in the shortest amount of time such that a child gains functional life skills that can be integrated into family life. Using measurable goals, you will educate and demonstrate efficacy of treatment. You will need to dedicate time and energy to collaborate with parents at each visit.
As well, on a weekly basis, you will meet with a supervisor to review any area in which there are questions or opportunities for feedback. Those new to our clinic will shore up their training in breathing, child development, behavioral management, and family counseling, as it relates to developmental disorders.

  • Weekly meetings with supervisor.
