What is the joining process?
Once you submit your request, it will be directly routed to our Talent Acquisition Team and a member of our team will reach out to set up a phone screen and clinical assessment. We are committed to timely responses and will reach back out with an offer if you are found to be a good fit to join our team! At that time, we will forward our contract with the terms and conditions. Once the contract is signed, we will give you access to our online system and forward you material on how to use our system.

What do I need to get started?
You must have access to a computer/laptop, webcam, headset, high-speed internet and a license to practice speech therapy in the state where client resides.
Is online therapy really as good as face-to-face therapy?
Research shows that teletherapy is just as effective as in person therapy. On average, our clients are seen 2-3 times/week in individual sessions, which means faster results.
What kind of material will I use?
We have a growing library of digital materials for everyone to use. In addition, you can use any of your own materials within your therapy sessions. You can even use the toys and objects within the child or adults home when you are doing teletherapy with your clients.
Will I be completing IEPs?
We are clinic-based and currently do not work with the school systems. Therefore, you will never have to complete an IEP!
What are the license requirements to provide teletherapy?
You must be licensed in the state in which you will be treating. If you do not have that license, you have the ability to obtain that license.

How does the Therapist communicate with clients?

We provide a report template to guide your assessment. We are currently not licensed to provide any standardized assessments for our providers. However, as independent contractors, you can use any of your own testing materials on our platform.
