The Arc of San Diego has group homes for adults with developmental disabilities. They are located primarily in Santee, Lemon Grove, and the South Bay. The group homes are licensed ICF-DD-H and regulated by the California Department of Public Health. Governing regulations require that our clients have any needed communication program designed by a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist. CCC is a plus.
The Arc of San Diego's Consulting Speech-Language Pathologist is responsible for assessing current and newly admitted clients and determining what type of communication program and/or communicative device is appropriate for them based on their individual needs. The Consulting Speech-Language Pathologist may be asked to re-assess any resident who experiences a change in medical condition due to a medical event or admission to an acute or skilled nursing facility. The Consulting Speech-Language Pathologist should be available to provide occasional staff in-services on effectively implementing communication programs and augmentative communication devices. The Consulting Speech-Language Pathologist would work under the direction of our Program Manager and in collaboration with the individual group home Administrators.
The Consulting Speech-Language Pathologist works as an independent contractor and is paid an hourly fee depending on experience. This consultancy offers schedule flexibility for in-person assignments (late afternoons, weekends, etc.) and access to client information from home via an easy to use electronic case management system. It's anticipated that the Consulting Speech-Language Pathologist will work approximately 10-12 hours per month.

The Arc of San Diego, a private, not-for-profit corporation, is one of the region's largest human-service agencies. We provide an extensive array of services to people with disabilities in San Diego County. Founded in 1951 by a determined group of parents and other community members who were concerned about the lack of services available for children with intellectual disabilities, Arc blends a lo...ng history of service with a national reputation for success. Today, we are guided by the same sense of purpose and dedication that inspired those parents 60 years ago.
The Arc of San Diego has a rich tradition of developing quality programs for children and adults with disabilities. All of our programs promote social, economic, and personal independence. We stand by our belief that people with disabilities have unlimited potential and the right to equality of opportunity.
Arc is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, CARF, which stands as a symbol of our commitment to the highest quality of service. The agency receives funds from state and federal government, corporate and foundation grants, individual donors, and the United Way. The Arc San Diego Foundation, established in 1992, augments funding for the development and maintenance of new and existing programs.
