HCDE's School-Based Therapy Services support staff are always courteous and helpful in supporting employees’ needs. New employees are provided a thorough orientation in their practice setting and mentored as they develop their skills.

Professional Growth

Opportunities for meaningful professional growth are a priority. That’s why we offer three days of in-house continuing education each year as well as allotments for additional continuing education. Employees are kept abreast of changes in the law and best practice. An extensive library includes books, videos, professional journals, and evaluation tools.


HCDE's School-Based Therapy Services offers work during the school year for employees who want time off in summer to be with their families as well as year-round work for those who work in early childhood intervention. An array of full and part-time positions is available. Therapists are never expected to work overtime or weekends. With positions in many of the school districts, employees can often work close to home, keeping commute times and fuel costs low.


Employees of HCDE's School-Based Therapy Services enjoy a work atmosphere of integrity. Employees are expected to work in ways that are consistent with professional ethics and in compliance with licensure rules. Therapy Services does the right things for the right reasons–helping children achieve their goals.


HCDE's School-Based Therapy Services values each of our excellent employees. Input from employees helps us create systems to make their jobs as efficient as possible and to design professional development that best meets their needs. Our employees know they are valued as people engaged in meaningful careers, not just workers getting a job done.
