Kapp Educational Therapy Group
We are currently hiring for the following position:
EDUCATIONAL THERAPIST OR LEARNING SPECIALIST
Beverly Hills, CA (local position)
Part-time (with option for full-time)
THE POSITION OVERVIEW
As a certified Educational Therapist, your role is to change the academic lives and trajectory for struggling learners. Your function is to provide ongoing support, strategies, and remediation to students in our practice. The goal of this position is to handle a dynamic caseload with a high level of clinician autonomy and flexibility.
You would coordinate with classroom teachers, allied professionals, and parents to transform the lives of the learner and their families.
This is a part-time position with potential for full-time. While our ideal candidate would be a certified educational therapist, we are open to the right candidate and want to meet you! If you are a teacher, learning specialist, special education professional, or student educational therapist looking to earn extra income in the afternoons and weekends, we welcome you! Additionally, if you are looking to make a career transition that is lucrative and incredibly rewarding as you watch the individualized journey of your client, this position may be for you!
NOTE: We are hiring a superstar that is excited to put their full focus into this position. If you have a business of your own that you plan to continue to grow, please do not apply. However, if you are tired of the grind of building your own practice and just want to “do the work” with clients, please do apply!
We are seeking fun, collaborative, dynamic, and detail-oriented individuals who are energized by providing top-notch service and support to learners and their families. We want you to be resourceful, communicative, and enjoy leading students toward a higher degree of independence and autonomy.
If you live within a 30-minute drive of Beverly Hills, CA and are looking to utilize your superior educational skills and talents to contribute to the premier and professional experience we offer, we invite you to apply.
We are seeking a great fit who is available to see clients in our offices on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. For the right individual, there is also an opportunity to expand your days/hours as we are growing and expanding.
This is an unique opportunity to directly impact the lives of students.
WHAT WE DO
Kapp Educational Therapy Group primarily serves learners with ADHD or executive functioning weaknesses. We also specialize in math and writing remediation which are weaknesses often present in students who struggle with executive functioning. We also offer reading remediation and support.
We lead a collaborative experience for our clients through teamwork and communication with the client’s “team” (the learner, parents, teachers, psychiatrists, psychologists, learning specialists, etc.). Through our high-level expertise and empathy, we guide clients through the different phases of educational therapy.
Our ultimate goal in our practice is for our clients to be independent and autonomous learners--and no longer need educational therapy!
