    We need a fantastic Speech Language Pathologist for a terrific Skilled Nursing Facility who will provide therapy evaluations, modalities and treatments as prescribed by a licensed physician in an effort to restore function and prevent disability following injury, disease or physical disability. The therapist assists patients to reach their maximum performance and level of functioning while learning to live within the limits of their capabilities.

    Our therapists love their jobs!
    • “I get to interact with children all day and assess, research, and help detect the reasons as to why they are experiencing difficulties.”
    • “I find great delight and joy in helping kids with disabilities. It’s a worthy cause.”
    • “I have the opportunity to help clients make progress on their goals, one of which is to finally be understood by family members and others.”

    Imagine working for a contract firm where you feel you have a voice and that you’re part of a team where your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions are valued. What if there was a company where your strengths are taken into account when being placed on a contract and where you feel cared for and well-represented? What if your compensation and benefit package was worthwhile? Too good to be true? Not a chance!
    Our therapists LOVE TherapyTravelers 

    •  “Sign up! I’ve already told close friends about them, one of whom is on her third contract assignment with TherapyTravelers.”
    • “I feel valued at TherapyTravelers and my voice matters!”
    • “After two years with the company, I can't think of anything for them to improve on -well, except for offering jobs in Australia and Fiji!”
