The Center for Developing Minds is seeking an experienced Educational Therapist/Specialist.
The clinician should offer a range of educational services, because he or she will be afforded
the independence to create individual and group programs. There is a need serve elementary,
middle, or high school students. Expertise with executive functioning is needed to support
many of our disorganized clients. We are looking for talented, motivated, problem solvers
with a broad enough background that they can craft a unique treatment plan for each client.
The clinician will work in an interdisciplinary setting, but must also have the capacity to
deliver thorough, independent assessments and treatment plans. Most important, the clinician
must be able to connect on a personal level with parents and students. Educational specialist
should have the appropriate credentials to provide educational therapy.
The Center for Developing Minds is seeking a part-time counsellor to provide evaluative and
therapeutic services for children and families affected by a range of developmental variations
including: behavioral, mental health, and social cognitive variations. Many of our clients
have weak executive functioning. A qualified therapist can be a licensed clinical psychologist,
clinical social worker, or marriage and family therapist. Although many of the CDM clients have high
prevalence, low severity conditions, the therapists should be able to identify and refer or
treat more significant mental health pathology. The therapist will have the opportunity
to carve out their own niche focusing on personal areas of counselling expertise. There will
also be opportunities to run existing groups or develop new programs. The counsellor will work
in an interdisciplinary setting supported by a team of clinicians. This position is part-time,
but has the potential to develop into a full-time practice.

population that ranges in age from preschool to young adult. The psychologist should have
expertise in testing children with many of the conditions frequently identified at the CDM:
oppositional behavior, anxiety, autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities, disorganized
children, attention dysfunctions and depression. It is expected that the psychologist will be
experienced with a range of "gold standard" psychological instruments. Most importantly, the
psychologist must understand typical child and adolescent development, know how to play and work
with children, and communicate with them on their level. The clinician should work collaboratively
because he or she will have the opportunity to perform in an interdisciplinary setting, but
must also have the capacity to deliver thorough independent assessments and treatment.

The occupational therapist needs to bounce off walls and spin in circles with children with
