Pediatric Occupational Therapist OT
Child's Play Therapy Services, PC Concord, CA
- Expired: over a month ago. Applications are no longer accepted.
Our mission at Child’s Play Therapy Services is to provide high-quality occupational therapy services for children. In a nurturing, child-centered environment, we support development in the areas of sensory processing, motor coordination, and the myriad functional skills built upon these areas. Our clients range in age from toddlers to teenagers, with most falling in the three to the ten-year-old range. Some have significant medical or educational diagnoses, while others have only mild developmental issues and may not require any other type of educational, medical, or therapeutic support. We work closely with parents and others involved in each child’s care, with the goal of providing services that are meaningful within the context of the child’s life. We provide OT, speech therapy, feeding therapy, and educational therapy.
Join our warm, fun-loving staff and become part of a collaborative environment where you’ll have regular contact with other creative therapists to exchange ideas and support, and know your work is valued and your ideas respected. We also offer the opportunity to grow your caseload as well as competitive pay.
We are currently hiring full-time OT. Placement is in our new state-of-the-art facility! You will be responsible for planning, evaluating, organizing, and conducting pediatric occupational therapy programs to facilitate growth in sensory-motor development.
The OT will administer occupational therapy evaluations and assessments to determine a child’s level of function relative to age in such areas as fine/gross motor skill development, sensory-motor integration, sensory modulation, self-care, and activities of daily living. The OT will develop a treatment plan and monitor progress for each child on his/her caseload. This position requires independent clinical judgment, well-developed communication skills, and the ability to work well with coworkers and families of clients.
This is the perfect place to continue to grow professionally with the opportunity to collaborate with our OTs, speech therapists, and educational specialists.
Entry-level applicants will receive mentorship from senior OT's.
