ALL SPG employees are assigned a personal Clinical Supervisor and have easy access to our comprehensive team of specialists. Our Mentors Listen. They Inspire. They Problem Solve.
AAC Mentorship Program: Growing New AAC Specialists
SPG’s network of experienced AAC Specialists provides monthly trainings, open labs, onsite guidance, and online consultations to help our SLPs become knowledgeable and competent with up-to-date AAC tools and techniques. The second year of this exciting program consists of an “AAC Internship Year.” Participants are assigned a SPG AAC Specialist who will provide support, guidance, and consultation both on and off site.
Employees have free access to online virtual toolkits such as TheraSimplicity and Social Skills Central. Clinical Supervisors distribute monthly summaries of EB research articles and SPG’s quarterly Employee Newsletter is packed full of helpful tips, recent legal mandates/regulations, upcoming trainings, useful websites and much, much more. Over 2,000 therapy materials, assessment measures, software and resource books are available for employees to check out from our comprehensive inventory.
SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS (SIGS)
SPG is proud to offer employees the opportunity to join one or all of the following Special interest Groups:
Behavioral Intervention SIG – The purpose of this group is to foster collaboration and provide expert training and advice to those who are interested in learning more about how to utilize evidence-based behavior intervention strategies to improve their services. The Behavior Intervention SIG provides a forum through which employees can pose questions, connect with colleagues and tap into resources from SPG’s growing staff of school-based Board Certified Behavior Analysts.
Cultural & Linguistically Diverse (CLD) SIG – This popular SIG group was designed for bilingual SLPs, those serving children of diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds and anyone who is interested in learning more about this topic. SPG’s CLD SIG members have access to expert information and opportunities to develop interconnectedness with colleagues through a shared on-line forum and to attend periodic professional development trainings which focus on the ELL student.
