Your years of hard work are about to pay off! Congratulations and welcome to the field! Now is the time to make one of the most important decisions of your career, and choose your first assignment. A new speech language pathologist’s career direction is most-closely informed by their first assignment, and the quality of that assignment – and their enthusiasm for this work – is often shaped by the degree of support they receive from their supervision.
It is toward this understandable concern that Go2Consult pledges its commitment to your ease of transition from student to practice. We provide excellent supervision and guidance from experts in this field, as well as a wide range of resources which can be relied upon to help navigate the often difficult waters of a new career.
Here are some other qualities which set us apart:
Supervision and Guidance. We provide strongly-focused supervision from highly-rated guidance personnel, who put in a significantly greater amount of supervision hours than ASHA standard, and seek to ensure that your every question is answered. Our supervisors are there for you, and provide the experience necessary to ensure that the transition from education to clinical practice is met with ease. We provide comprehensive guidance in common ‘trouble’ areas during your first year of practice, including how to create student schedules and IEP calendars, as well as guidance for how to prepare IEPs, as well as instruction in how to present student reports and how best to present student progress. In addition, we are a small enough organization that all levels of management are on hand to ensure that your needs are met.
Personal Supervision from Management. Head of Go2Consult Dr. Adriana Lavi, an experienced speech therapist with extensive experience in the schools of southern California, holder of specialized training and expertise in the area of autism, and author of the comprehensive and cutting-edge Clinical Assessment of Pragmatics (CAPs) test, is on hand to personally guide your placement. She personally coordinates with each of the SLPs we hire, to help them to find the practice which is their best fit for their interests, education, and expertise. Through working closely with both our SLPs and schools administration, she provides insider expertise as to which student populations might best be served by our staff, and where SLP needs are greatest. Unlike other SLP agencies in California, Lavi and other members of our core team strive to ensure that each new SLP hired is directed to specific schools which meet their specific needs.
Competitive Pay and Professional Benefits. Go2Consult provides the highest pay in the industry, offering 20-30% higher base pay than that offered by other SLP agencies. Appropriately, our standards are higher, but because we seek only the best SLPs, and provide generous compensation for their skills. In addition, we compensate all of our SLPs for their California SLP licensure and credentials, the cost of their professional insurance as well as tests and therapy materials. Signing bonuses are also available for qualified candidates.
Therapy Resources. Our comprehensive library of resources is informed by our greater than a decade of operation, and the experiences, viewpoints, and data provided by all of our SLPs throughout the Inland Empire and greater Southern California region. Through active collaboration and wide-reaching information sharing, you can rest assured that the answers you seek – or the means to gain critical information – is often just a quick moment away.
We also provide opportunities for continuing education, to ensure that each of our SLPs continues to advance their knowledge as they work.
Specialized Training. Go2Consult provides specialized training programs designed to ensure that all of our SLPs gain the skills they need to meet our students’ needs. We provide a bilingual SLP training program, through which all of our interested bilingual SLPs can gain expertise in the provision of bilingual assessment and therapy for our many Spanish-speaking student-clients. Specific placements are offered by which 45 hours of bilingual assessment instruction is provided to interested SLPs. In addition, we provide a direct training program in the therapy, assessment, and intervention focused on students with severe to mild/high-functioning autism.
Go2Consult is a small facility eager to make a difference in our client’s lives, and are committed to ensuring that all the SLPs we hire are matched with assignments which will allow them to share in this mission, to gain the skills they need to succeed, and be compensated generously for their efforts.
