Clinical Fellowship in Speech Language Pathology

About the program

The Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental & Related Disabilities (LEND) post graduate degree fellowship in speech-language pathology is a full-time position that lasts for 12 months, and is primarily clinical in nature. Clinical training occurs at the Child Development & Rehabilitation Center (CDRC) Clinics at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital/Oregon Health & Science University. Training and mentorship are provided by our faculty of 8 speech-language pathologists. Training experiences include interdisciplinary team assessments in the Craniofacial, Feeding, Autism, Down Syndrome, Child Development, and Neurodevelopment Clinics. The fellowship also includes treatment of children with communication disorders at community placements or at the CDRC clinics.

In addition to clinical experience, the clinical fellow will also participate in:

  • Interdisciplinary training in the LEND program
  • Weekly interdisciplinary seminars with topics related to community outreach, family issues that affect children with developmental disabilities, leadership, and policy development
  • Engagement in a family mentoring experience
  • Engagement in a leadership/community engagement project
  • A research project and presentation under the guidance of a mentor
  • Leadership and teaching opportunities
  • Opportunities for continuing education

    The Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities program at the CDRC is recognized as one of the premier programs in the country for training leadership in clinical care and coordination, family systems, education, public policy, community resources, and advocacy for children with neurodevelopmental disabilities, utilizing an interdisciplinary model. Our annual LEND program includes faculty and a cohort of approximately 16 long term trainees from 12 disciplines, including speech- language pathology.

This fellowship is co-sponsored by the Division of Speech-Language Pathology and the Institute on Development & Disability at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Oregon.

SLP or CF Position Available at the Kansas School for the Deaf

Message from a current SLP at the Kansas School for the Deaf:

We are currently looking for an SLP to join our team for the 2020-2021 school year. Finding SLPs who are skilled to work within our unique setting can be quite difficult. Although, we have found that once we gain an SLP here, they often stay until retirement. I have been a part of this rich, Kansas, Deaf community for 17 years and am thankful to have specialized with this population. We are a bilingual, preschool through high school setting and our 6 current SLPs utilize both ASL and English when working with our students. Our SLPs also hold their CCCs and would be able to supervise a new graduate through their CFY year.  While American Sign Language fluency is not a mandatory requirement upon interviewing for the position, the desire to learn the language is!  Almost all of us have learned this language on the job and on-site classes are provided for free to our new employees.
