The Red Oak Centre
Since opening its doors in 2016, The Red Oak Centre has been offering integrated, comprehensive support for families. By combining counselling with education and specialized support in occupational therapy and speech pathology, we’re able to offer unique, multi-disciplinary options.
We are a team of psychologists, teachers, and therapists that believe in the power of wellness. By offering a non-pathologizing environment we foster learning, progress, and growth for both parents and children.
We take pride in the people we’ve helped over the years, and their response has been overwhelming. Today our practice is growing and we’re looking for bright, warm, and motivated Speech-Language Pathologists to help us in our mission.
The Red Oak Centre—a unique practice with a special team
Our team is composed of a range of professionals with diverse knowledge, approaches, and specializations. When you join our team, you’ll become part of a network of psychologists that offers opportunities for both collaboration and growth.
Speech mechanics are an important part of therapy, but beyond enunciation, our therapists engage the social dynamics of speech. Helping clients understand and navigate the complex landscape of social cues, body language, and perspective-taking is an essential part of our work.
That’s why it’s critical that our SLPs have a deep knowledge of and interest in the social context from which children and teens are coming. In particular, familiarity with the etiquette of mobile technology for young people, and an interest in the fluid social norms such technology presents, will be important.
Of course, parents are an integral part of children’s social lives; coaching and guiding parents on effective strategies and techniques will have immense and positive effects on their progress.
Here’s what you can look forward to when joining The Red Oak Centre:
- An open, collaborative work environment
- Management team that believes in feedback, continuous improvement, and transparency
- Advanced, intuitive tech systems that manage everything from client files to room bookings and scheduling
- Professional development opportunities that include seminars and working with schools
- Opportunity to make a difference for children and their families
We have both full and part-time contract positions available. SLPs will receive hourly wages that reflect their level of experience. Mentorship is an important practice on our team; mentoring peers will be a compensated and important part of your work.
For the time being, therapy will be remote, and we are accepting applications from anyone with professional registration in Ontario.
