Description:

North Country Education Services, a non-profit educational organization in northern New Hampshire. NCES provides specialized, licensed/certified staff for a number of school districts in New Hampshire.

An NCES SLP works as a contributing and collaborative IEP Team Member to assess student needs and prescribe appropriate treatment to be carried out during the course of the school day. These treatments may occur within the regular classroom setting or in alternative appropriate space.

The ideal candidate should be independent, but motivated by working as a member of the team, organized, show initiative, and have an up-to-date and confident knowledge of evaluation theory, tools, and practices. Candidate must hold a SLP license in New Hampshire. CCCs preferred.

This opening is to provide SLP services, including supervision of a SLPA, in northern New Hampshire to school-aged children. Ideally, a candidate will be available one day per week during the school year, for a total of 36 days. However, the position could be lessened to 2 days/month (18 days over the school year) if that is the amount of time the candidate has available. The position is slated to serve students at Easter Seals in Lancaster through a contract with NCES.

As North Country Education Services is a consortium serving several SAUs, additional days may be possible if the candidate is interested in more than 40 days.
