Build a Speech-Language Pathology Career You Love

As part of the Care Options for Kids formerly The Hello Foundation team, you drive the trajectory of your career. We collaborate closely with our speech-language pathology assistants to select school district placements. As a valued member of our community, you can set criteria, choose placements, and make decisions that best suit your needs.

We have three service delivery models that we tailor to fit each district’s needs — providing our SLPs with flexible choices for optimal work-life integration.

Teletherapy Model
Our teletherapy model provides clinicians and districts flexibility and convenience. We offer dedicated telepractice training to help you excel.

Hybrid Model

Our hybrid model combines the best of both worlds, allowing for both on-site and remote services in school districts throughout the western U.S.

Traditional On-Site Model
Prefer to work on-site? We provide services to districts in and around the greater Portland, OR metro and SW Washington area.


How You’ll Help Students Thrive

Our SLPAs work under the direction of speech-language pathologists to carry out customized plans for each child. You’ll help children navigate obstacles impacting their fluency, articulation, voice, language use and understanding, and more. 

You will work within districts as part of a collaborative team, providing support for:

  • Evaluation and assessment
  • Targeted interventions
  • Collaboration and consultation with general education staff
  • In-class supports
  • Progress monitoring and reporting
  • Dismissal from services

We Nurture You and Your Career

We began with one overarching purpose: to provide a working environment that allows clinicians to thrive in their careers and maintain healthy boundaries with their personal lives. We empower our SLPAs both professionally and personally because, by showing up for our team members, we provide them with the tools and confidence to authentically show up for the kids, families, and schools we serve. We are proud to have built a joyful, inclusive, collaborative, and compassionate working environment that allows everyone to succeed.
