Innovative Salary Model for Itinerant Pediatric Speech Pathologist Job

Pediatric Speech Language Pathologist:  New Itinerant SLP Position with $50,000 Base Salary plus Bonus!  

Have you always loved working with young children? Do you need a predictable pay check?  Are you organized, flexible and skilled at managing your own schedule?  

Little Lukes is the leader in Upstate New York pediatric speech therapy, with a unique opportunity for SLP and CFY jobs.  Earn a base salary of $50,000 per year and work with young children ages 0-5, in Early Intervention and Preschool services.  Plus earn an annual bonus for productivity, with an opportunity to earn upwards of $75,000 or more each year.  

New Salary Option for Oswego NY Speech Pathology Jobs

The biggest challenge (and opportunity) with home-based or itinerant speech language pathology jobs in Watertown NY and Oswego NY area has always been the "pay per visit" structure.  You are paid for every speech visit and evaluation.  This is great for moms with young kids who want a flexible schedule, or therapists who want part time speech pathology jobs.  It is fantastic for new grads who want to pay off college loans and save, because there is no limit on how many children you can accept on your caseload!  

But many speech pathologists say they need a set salary to get a mortgage or car loan.  Others found their caseload ebbs and flows over the year as children enter Kindergarten or the flu strikes the UPKs.  So right now we are offering a choice of salary or full time "pay per visit" for pediatric speech pathologists.  Both options have excellent income potential and a flexible schedule.

Setting for Pediatric Speech Pathology Salary Jobs

Our itinerant therapists work with young children in their home, daycare, UPK, Head Start or preschool building.  Some "push in" to the classroom, others work in separate therapy space, depending on the IEP.  SLP-CCC can also earn more for supervising a CFY or Speech Therapist.  You can choose the towns, counties and age groups - many therapists prefer just preschool age, or certain parts of Oswego County or Jefferson County to limit driving.

Benefits of SLP Working at Little Lukes

The top benefit of itinerant therapy is setting your own schedule.  There is flexibility to be done working before the school bus, or to take 3-day weekends and see all your kids in 4 days.  As long as you maintain a full caseload and complete all reports and billing!  

Little Lukes provides therapists with an iPad for notes and reporting, and apps for tracking data and completing reports.  Excellent training program for new hires, and ongoing support and mentoring for new grads or those new to pediatrics.  Little Lukes offers full time salary and full time perdiem therapists options for medical insurance, dental insurance, life insurance, 401K and continuing education.  Paid relocation is also available!
