Job Description

Meeting Street is the largest and longest established Early Intervention Provider in Rhode Island. We provide services to children aged birth to three years old with developmental disabilities or delays, giving them and their families individualized support and resources to enhance their development and learning.

We work with families and caregivers in their natural environment to assess their needs, build on their strengths and address their challenges. In collaboration with families, we develop a comprehensive plan to help them meet their goals and assist them in getting there. Our mission is to ensure that children are provided with every opportunity to develop to their fullest potential.

About this Role:

Our Speech Language Pathologists work with infants and toddlers that are at risk for developmental delay, providing support in strengthening their communication skills, fostering language and speech development, providing sign language and cued language training and developing oral motor functioning, including identifying specific communication disorders of the child. We follow a coaching model to support parents and caregivers to implement individualized strategies, and build upon their functional skills throughout their day.

Early Intervention employees independently manage a caseload, communicating and scheduling appointments directly with their families, and are responsible for providing their own transportation to and from appointments.

Join a multi-disciplinary team that values communication and learning from each other! We are proud to provide comprehensive onboarding, training and mentorship throughout the first twelve months of employment, with continued support for all employees from our engaged, experienced and knowledgeable management team.
