Why Bilingual SLPs Should Choose Bilingual Therapies
With a growing multicultural population, the need for bilingual professionals in school-based positions continues to increase. Unfortunately, in many school systems, these professionals do not always have the support they need. For this reason, Bilingual Therapies was formed in 1997. With a mission to create a network of bilingual professionals, Bilingual Therapies not only offers help locating the perfect assignment but offers an environment that helps you grow and best serve your students. There are several benefits that come with choosing an assignment through Bilingual Therapies rather than going directly through a school district.
