Speech Language Pathologist in Orange County, CA

I feel incredibly thankful to be working for Pacific Coast Speech Services. I just recently started my own private speech therapy practice, and was looking for a job that would offer me security, as well as, flexibility to expand my business. This is the perfect place to do that. The business owners are encouraging and supportive of me as an SLP and business owner. The business owners had my best interest and worked with me to find the ideal schedule that allowed me to expand my private practice. I also enjoy the collaboration and network they have created for their SLPs. Because the business owners themselves are SLPs, they understand what CEUs might be more relevant and share those with their clinicians. They are professional and create a caring environment where you feel appreciated as an employee. I must express that I also do not feel overworked in my school job, which is so often the case for many SLPs working in the schools. I think that comes from business owners who are amazing industry leaders and managers, who truly have your back. Thank you Pacific Coast Speech Services for allowing me to live my dream of starting my own private practice and for finally giving me a work-life balance!

I genuinely enjoyed my time working at PCSS. The management, staff, and other coworkers were wonderful. I always felt supported and heard. It is a great company for SLPs that are just starting out as well as those who have been in the field for a long time. It will be difficult to find another company that genuinely cares so much about their employees and their well-being.

I began working with PCSS out of grad school for my CFY - I was immediately treated as family and part of a close-knit team. Because I did not grow up in California, I was nervous to begin the job search and feared going to work for a not-so-great district with a not-so-great supervisor. Speaking with one of the owners for just 5 minutes eased all my worries and I knew immediately that working for them would be a great choice, and it was! Here are a few reasons why you should work for PCSS too: 1. The owners are SLPs themselves, and they are well-connected (and loved!) within the community. Districts trust them and repeatedly come back for more and more contracts. 2. You will be paired with a supervisor who complements your strengths and needs. I was paired with an incredible supervisor who was always available to me to chat about treatment, help with assessments, read over reports, or just let me talk out my ideas. 3. If you have a challenging or unique case, they will find an expert on the topic and pay them to help you! 4. For full-time employees, you get a generous yearly stipend to spend on whatever materials or trainings that you wish. 5. They have the students’ and community’s best interest at heart. Always. This is true in many ways, but one example is that I was interested in a training the school district I was working with was hosting but it wouldn't be covered for me since I’m not a district employee. PCSS reached out to the district and decided to cover it for me anyway. This is a company that is 100% honest, 100% kind, and truly believes in all of their clinicians. You will not regret choosing them!

Speech Language Pathologist in Tustin, CA

I have had the pleasure of working for Pacific Coast Speech Services since I began my career as a Speech Language Pathologist. I moved to Southern California as a new CF and was both confused and scared as to how I would navigate this new career in a state I was unfamiliar with. I was hesitant choosing a contracting company in fear I would be treated as another SLP “filling in” the position and not receive the support I needed especially starting my new career. Boy was I wrong! PCSS made the process simple and easy and immediately treated me as though I had been with the company for years. The director of staffing took the time to know me as a person as well as take into account my strengths, weaknesses, preferences, and interests. I was first matched with a fabulous CFY mentor who was knowledgable, kind, professional, and most importantly always available. I was then given my CFY assignment in a public school, which accommodated my exact specifications. My first year as a SLP would not have gone as well as it did without PCSS. I felt more than supported by my PCSS team. I knew not one but multiple individuals who have experience in the field if I ran into any issues.

Beginning my second year, I felt as though I had the knowledge and experience to take on (most of) anything! The director of staffing and I discussed widening my horizons and possibly choosing a different population than what I was used to, as I had only had experience in general education. Her suggestion to branch out was correct and I ended up loving medically fragile and SDC preschool classrooms! I would not have found which population I am truly passionate about without the help of PCSS. I feel as though my time spent with PCSS has strengthened my skillsets and molded me into a well rounded knowledgable clinician.

I knew one of my first questions when I joined a contracting company was if the pay was comparable to that of Southern California school district. PCSS does offer competitive pay compared to a district job. The one con is that there aren’t as many benefits comparatively. That being said, PCSS does offer a $200 per month full time bonus which pays the majority of my health insurance. Additionally, PCSS does offer gradual raises during your CF year and raises for every year you are with the company. Finally, PCSS does offer approximately $600 per year for materials, ASHA dues, supplies, games, and activities (whatever you see fit). This $600 yearly has helped me tremendously in building my therapy room and materials. I believe one of PCSS’s many strengths are that the directors of the company are Speech Pathologists themselves. They have been in your shoes before and want the best for their employees. They are a relatively smaller contracting company which enables them to connect with staff personally and directly, rather than just behind a computer.

My advice to any SLP looking for a contracting company in Southern California, please do not pass up this opportunity. You do not find an honest, supportive, and genuine contracting company like PCSS very often.

For the seasoned Speech Language Pathologist, Pacific Coast Speech Services provides the optimal balance between professional autonomy and support, perhaps because the owners are themselves Speech Language Pathologists with over 35 years' experience in the niche of public school speech/language pathology. They uniquely and successfully place their clinicians in perfectly-tailored environments, matching the strengths of the speech language pathologist with the needs of the school site(s). This facilitates the clinician to thrive and the school to be well serviced. The Clinical Supervisor at PCSS has a keen leadership "touch" with a knack for respectful affirmation of the experienced clinician's professional judgment, yet completely accessible and open to insuring a healthy work/life balance by providing additional support during the inevitable high stress weeks of IEP meetings & assessments. Not only that, the owners of PCSS have built a team of highly qualified and exceptionally competent speech language pathologists, further supporting professional collaboration and growth in the day to day work environment. Additionally, PCSS offers the opportunity for supervisory positions, allowing a Speech Language Pathologist the privilege of passing the baton of this very special profession to the newest generation of clinicians. Overall, my time employed as an SLP in the school setting by PCSS provided exceptional job satisfaction in a setting notoriously stressful and overwhelming. I am personally very grateful for my five years with Pacific Coast Speech Services.
