Job Description

Saco Bay Kids in Portland, ME is seeking a (per diem- part time) speech language pathologist

Saco Bay Kids is expanding to Portland ME! We are doing great things in the community and seeking local per diem/ part time speech language pathologist (SLP) to join our team. This would begin as per diem and grow to part time and full time as the caseload develops. We offer speech, physical and occupational therapy services at this outpatient center (birth to 18). An ideal speech language pathologist would have previous experience ready to lead our 100% pediatric caseload. Our patients range in diagnoses, including ortho, neuro, oncology, early intervention and feeding with a focus on quality care through supportive team environment, company paid continuing education and reasonable caseload expectations.

Previous experience in pediatrics is preferred, but we are able to consider new graduate speech pathologists seeking clinical fellowship (CFY) with multiple SLP- CCCs on staff. Early intervention and feeding- swallowing experience is a plus, but not required. You MUST have an eagerness for learning new skills and techniques to be a fit for us. 

This center has a positive reputation in the community seeking like-minded speech pathologists to join our dynamic and compassionate team.

We will start per diem- part time and grow into full time as the caseload develops. We are open 830am until 5pm weekdays and can discuss a schedule fitting you and our patients during interview.
