We are looking for a speech language therapist with experience in supporting learners with special needs to work within a specialist school environment. As a therapist you will enjoy working as part of a dynamic and innovative therapy team, focused on supporting learning and development for each of our students.

Wilson School is a vibrant and supportive specialist school based on Auckland’s North Shore. Our base school is in the Takapuna area. In addition to this, there are five satellite classes in mainstream schools around the North Shore, so a full driver’s license is essential. The School supports students with special needs aged between 5-21. You will have a varied caseload and work with teachers and teacher aides to ensure best practice is embedded into classroom programmes. We provide a friendly, supportive, and professional work environment, opportunity to develop strengths and interests and professional development opportunities.

The ideal applicant will have:

  • Excellent communication skills and be a team player.
  • The ability to build positive relationships with students, staff and whānau.
  • The ability to work collaboratively within the therapy team.
  • Understanding of the learning needs of students on the Autism Spectrum.
  • Experience of, or an interest in dysphagia.
  • Previous experience or knowledge of AAC systems. EMS accreditation would be an advantage.
  • Experience within an educational setting would be beneficial.
  • A current NZSTA membership, or eligibility for one, is required for this post.

Position starts term 1, 2022 or by negotiation.
