Full Job Description

Rebecca School is an independent private day school in New York City that specializes in teaching children ages 4-21 who have a range of neurodevelopmental differences, including autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

The school was founded and uses a developmental model known as DIRFloortime ® (Developmental, Individual-difference, Relationship-based) developed by Stanley Greenspan, M.D.

Rebecca School is looking for a full-time Speech-Language Pathologist to provide developmental assessment and therapy in both individual and group settings. Sessions can occur in a variety of environments, contexts, and social settings, dependent on each student’s individualized Speech and Language program.

Through collaboration across disciplines, SLPs are able to make modifications to each classroom and therapeutic environment to enhance an individual’s comprehension or ability to express their ideas.

While language development is always a primary focus of therapy, a developmental approach is also applied toward mealtime and feeding development for our students; especially those with limited diets.

Cooking groups, feeding groups, sensory-based play, community outings, and field trips are just a few of the many mediums which are utilized by our therapists to connect with and promote enjoyable learning opportunities for each student in relation to their individualized growth.
