Speech-Language Pathologist

Website TELL Lab @ UDEL

The Treatment Efficacy and Language Learning Lab at the University of Delaware is looking for a parttime Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) to assist with data collection on two federally funded intervention studies. One study compares parent coaching to clinician delivered intervention for syntax targets and the other compares vocabulary, grammar, and science intervention. Both studies are conducted via tele-health.

The ideal candidate should be capable of conducting a limited set of diagnostic assessments (e.g., PPVT5, DELV-NR, EVT-3), as part of a research protocol and providing recast therapy for complex sentences and vocabulary. We will provide additional training in treatment protocols, but formal knowledge of grammatical forms (e.g., passive voice, object relative clause) is a plus. Additional skills include willingness to learn and consistently follow a research protocol, willingness/ability to document both assessment and treatment activities in a reliable and detail-oriented way to enhance reproducibility, to rapidly build and maintain rapport and engagement with children and parents, ability to take
constructive feedback well and implement the feedback promptly, and a willingness to abide by both clinical and research ethics.

Required credentials include a master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology and certification from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (CCC-SLP). Preference will be given to candidates who are familiar with relevant assessments and teletherapy practices, or who have previously participated in
research. This position is primarily remote, with work occurring mostly through Zoom, in the late afternoon and early evening hours (e.g., 3-6:30pm) and occasionally on weekends (e.g., Saturday mornings) though occasional in person activities at UD will be required. Each week, the SLP will see ~7 to 10 children in one-on-one and small group settings, following specific research protocols, and maintain records associated with these children. The SLP may also assist with participant recruitment activities
(e.g., sending and responding to emails from community referral sources) when the enrolled participants are anticipated to result in less than a half time workload.

Salary will be commensurate with experience. This is a half-time position, and requires a one-year commitment, with the possibility of extension.

Resumes should be emailed to Amanda Van Horne (ajovh@udel.edu)
