Bilingual clinicians and clinical fellows who speak a second language at native or near-native proficiency, and that are interested in working with bilingual/bicultural children.
Applications are always welcome. We encourage you to apply as soon as possible so we can start working on your placement.
We require a master’s degree for some professions; however, if you are approaching graduation or finishing your bachelor’s degree, we encourage you to apply. During the application process you will be required to obtain necessary certification and a temporary license, if applicable. You need to have a state license and certification to practice in the state where you would like to work. We will guide you during the process.
The majority of our work is in Spanish; however, we have successfully placed clinicians with Mandarin and Hindi language skills. Bilingual Therapies is always striving to diversify our offerings in hopes to present opportunities where our clinicians can use their second language.
We interview applicants in Spanish to assess your proficiency. In the event that your language is not Spanish, Bilingual Therapies will make every attempt to assess your proficiency with our potential clients.
Yes. If you are working to become bilingual, but do not have near-native proficiency, you can still apply for employment. We will train you to become a bilingual clinician; and until you reach near-native proficiency, you can work for us as a monolingual clinician.
You need a state license and certification, if applicable, to practice in the state you want to work. As part of our support efforts, we will help you with the credentialing process.
We place clinicians all over the country, and we work very hard to place you where you want to live.
There are many factors that can affect caseload size, including the specific state you want to work in and the needs of the school district you are supporting. Ultimately, our clinicians have caseloads that are comparable to those of other clinicians in the same school district.
It depends on the site. Resources vary from district to district.
Bilingual Therapies encourages clinicians to refer friends or colleagues for employment. For every referred clinician who is hired and works for the company for one year, the referring employee receives a $500 bonus at the end of the contract year.
