At SPG we deliver top-notch speech/language, behavior intervention, OT & PT, mental health and school psychology services, guided by evidence-based practices and a highly trained team of experienced, caring clinicians. SPG’s clinical excellence and strong belief in providing the best outcomes for the children we service has long been a part of our core values. Because our clinicians are often placed in districts close to where they reside, they are truly invested in the community and in partnering with district staff.
Whether embarking on your first year or are an experienced clinician in a new setting, SPG understands the importance of guidance and mentorship. ALL SPG employees are assigned a personal Clinical Supervisor for on-site and resource support and have easy access to our comprehensive team of specialists. Our licensed/certified SLPs and BCBAs provide top-notch supervision for CF/RPE therapists and RBTs.

AAC Mentorship Program: Growing New AAC Specialists
SPG’s network of experienced AAC Specialists provide 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 and are provided with the opportunity to either attend in person or participate via live webinar, SPG’s complementary, professional growth trainings. SPG’s quarterly Employee Newsletter is packed full of helpful tips, recent legal mandates/regulations, evidence-based interventions, 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. Clinical Supervisors have access to SPG’s “Clinical Supervisor Toolbox” to select and distribute handy forms and other informational handouts.
SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS (SIGS)
SPG is proud to offer employees the opportunity to join one or more of the following Special Interest Groups:
Cultural & Linguistic Diversity Special Interest Group
The CLD SIG was designed for bilingual SLPs and SLPs serving children of diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, but the dialogue and resources shared within this SIG are relevant to a number of professional disciplines. The group is meant to be a forum for collaboration, to support each other, and to learn from our collective knowledge, skills, perspectives, and experiences related to cultural and linguistic diversity issues in our fields. Membership in the CLD group facilitates access to information and interconnectedness with SPG colleagues through a Google group and periodic trainings and events.
Interdisciplinary ABA Special Interest Group
SPG employees across all disciplines are invited to help shape the iABA forum into a space for conversation, consultation, and collaboration. Clients with challenging behaviors often receive services from a variety of service providers. The science of ABA offers evidence-based practices to decrease therapy-interfering behaviors and maximize treatment outcomes. Members of iABA will benefit from the collective knowledge and experience of their SPG colleagues, including Board Certified Behavior Analysts. In addition, iABA promotes dialogue on addressing potential barriers to collaboration with behavior analysts, such as differing conceptual frameworks, professional jargon, and perceptions of encroachment.
Augmentative & Alternative Communication/Assistive Technology Special Interest Group
The AAC/AT SIG is predominantly composed of SLPs, but is relevant to a number of professional disciplines. The AAC/AT SIG is meant to be an open forum for all SPG professionals to ask and answer questions, problem solve, share resources, and make relevant announcements – all AAC and AT topics. Membership in the AAC/AT group facilitates access to information and interconnectedness with SPG colleagues through a Google group and periodic trainings and events.
