PHYSICAL THERAPY ASSISTANT DIPLOMA PROGRAM
FACULTY OF HEALTH AND COMMUNITY STUDIES
The Allied Health Department is proposing a new interdisciplinary therapy assistant (ITA) diploma program which would meet the need for therapy assistants who are able to work across all major allied health rehabilitation disciplines (i.e. occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech and language therapy, and recreation therapy). The ITA program would provide students with a strong occupational therapy assistant and physical therapy assistant background, and incorporate essential assistant level skills in speech language therapy and therapeutic recreation.
The SLP consultant would support the development of the new ITA program by developing learning outcomes and content overview for two speech language pathology assistant courses. They would also provide input regarding the overall program vision and architecture, and practicum structure. This initial contract would require 6-8 hours of work to be completed prior to May 2, 2018. Hours are flexible.
Once the program is approved (September 2018) the contract could be extended. The consultant would then provide subject matter expertise and develop curriculum (course content, learning activities, and assessments). They would provide online and face-to-face instruction, deliver hands-on lab workshops, and support clinical placement.
SALARY: Commensurate with education and experience. This is a casual assignment that is paid on an hourly basis.
