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 serve 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, PTs, OTs, School Pyschs, Mental Health Therapists, and BCBAs provide top-notch supervision for CF/RPE therapists, RBTs, COTAs, PTAs, and more!

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 monthly Employee Newsletter is packed full of helpful tips, evidence-based interventions, upcoming trainings, and more. All SPG teammates have access to the 2,000+ therapy materials, assessment measures, software, and resource books that are available for employees to check out from our comprehensive inventory. Clinical Supervisors have access to SPG’s “Clinical Supervisor Toolbox” to share invaluable 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. Here are just a few we offer:
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 Common Ground Special Interest Group
This SIG is unique because it is facilitated by a number of professionals in various disciplines including BCBA’s, SLPs, OTs, PTs, and Psychologists.
Members of the Common Ground SIG strive to build connections and improve their relationships with professionals across disciplines. Noticing similarities rather than highlighting differences profoundly changes how we interact with each other and lays the foundation for meaningful, productive communication. This SIG provides a supportive environment to intentionally practice finding common ground with colleagues who don’t share the same conceptual frameworks and scopes of practice and competence. Members are invited to join monthly coffee chats featuring structured conversation topics that aim to blend perspectives and brew up thoughtful discussion.
OT/PT Exchange Special Interest Group
SPG’s OT/PT Exchange Special Interest Group. In the OT/PT Exchange SIG, members share immediate and current information specific to the OT and PT scopes of practice. We are excited to collaborate together on treatment ideas, assessment needs, parent and staff support, case studies, resource sharing, and adaptive technology resources and interventions!
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.
Teletherapy Special Interest Group
This multi-disciplinary group is a forum for collaboration, where clinicians share their collective knowledge, skills, perspectives, and experiences related to teletherapy issues in all fields.
School Psych Exchange Group
SPG’s School Psych Exchange Special Interest Group strives to provide a community for the school psychology discipline where we can freely discuss issues uniquely related to our field. As a group, we learn from one another and share perspectives, questions, and shared experiences. Training and events will be periodically offered, as well as information relevant to the group.
