2021 – 2022 School Year
For over 50 years, The Gateway School has transformed the lives of bright children who experience academic difficulty as a result of language-based learning disabilities (e.g., dyslexia, reading and writing disorders), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), executive function disorder, or auditory processing difficulties. Located on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Gateway enrolls 180 students between the ages of 5-14. In small classes with a low student-to-teacher ratio, faculty and therapists meet students where they are, individualize instruction accordingly, and develop them into skilled, strategic, independent learners who are capable of advocating for themselves and who are prepared to transition into mainstream school and life.
The Gateway School is seeking an experienced Language Therapist for the 2021-2022 school year to provide therapeutic intervention and educational instruction to students in a cognitive-linguistic framework. The Language Therapist teaches with a focus on academic language and strategy instruction in a group setting according to Gateway’s integrated curriculum. The Language Therapist also teaches a reading and writing group in the Lower School division using the Gateway Programs, PAF and The Hochman Method. Further, the Language Therapist collaborates with teachers and other professionals on how to best meet students’ language learning needs. The position also involves conducting language screenings and other assessments and submitting progress reports. The ideal candidate is an experienced Language Therapist with a strong desire to work in a collaborative environment and a commitment to teaching students with language-based learning disabilities.
