Therapist Success Stories
Elsa E.Speech-Language Pathology eHelper
It is nice working with a great staff who aims to work for a common goal, which is helping our students with speech and language.
Brennan J.Speech-Language Pathology eHelper
We really enjoy the services and the friendly atmosphere during sessions. I noticed a great improvement on most of the students, and they really liked the activities. The students were very engaged and enthusiastic about coming to the sessions. To add to that, [our therapist] really made the students comfortable and confident during the activities.
Karen S.Special Education Director
TinyEYE is willing to work and adapt to the needs of their clients. They have allowed our school to bring consistent services into our rural area for students who need severe interventions. The staff is friendly and easy to work with [and] are able to develop a program that fits a student’s very specific needs. The progress we have seen since working with TinyEYE is incredible.
Dr. Ira H.Special Education Director
TinyEYE provides an outstanding, professional service that is rivaled by no other telemedicine service provider. The therapists are professional and well-trained in providing online services.
Nancy K.TinyEYE Therapist
I have 20+ years’ experience as a Speech-Language Pathologist working with children. For the past three school-years, I have had the pleasure and personal growth of serving a school district as a TinyEYE SLP. During this time, I have been able to positively impact more students in a shorter period of time than in any of my past experiences as an onsite therapist… AND have established extremely close relationships with my students!
Kelly M.Special Education Director
The therapist my student was paired up with is very friendly, and the student seemed engaged by his sessions. He even bragged to his friends that he has a teacher that lives in another state! The games they play are very interactive. I feel comfortable trusting our therapist as a professional, because of how organized and clear her goals were.
Christine G.Special Education Director
I attended our therapist’s Triennial this afternoon. It went extremely well! There was a parent who was very resistant to the telepractice model, but our therapist has done an outstanding job building relationships with the mother and child. Happily, the parent signed the IEP and is looking forward to the services for her son. Thank you!
Lu K.Special Education Director
When I [first] started as a director, I was skeptical (to say the least) about TinyEYE. I have been incredibly impressed with everything [TinyEYE has to offer]. I appreciate all you have done to make this a wonderful experience for our kids – providing services with high quality therapists. Thank you so very much!
Carol K.TinyEYE Therapist
I cannot thank you enough for making [custom] game set. I used it today [and the] students loved it! It was so fun to see their faces light up when they saw a familiar picture. It promoted great sentences, information sharing and conversations. Students who usually give one-word answers were using whole sentences. They were adding additional information and answering my questions. So fun! Thank you!
Deanna B.TinyEYE Therapist
Perhaps the most impactful change has been the increase in my self-worth, and esteem. For the first time in my decade career, I have found a company that recognizes I have more to bring to the table than just my degree. Supervisors and colleagues make an effort to get to know me, and incorporate other talents and interests that I possess in order to contribute in a variety of ways to TinyEYE and the schools and students we serve. The support, praise and recognition has been life-altering, and pushes me to be better in both my personal life, and in providing services to my schools and students. TinyEYE has made my life better in so many ways, (too many to list) and I am a better person because of it. I will be forever grateful.
Frequently Asked Questions
Caseloads can vary for direct online therapy. Often Speech-Language Pathologists and Occupational Therapists are licensed in multiple state/provinces in order to serve more students in need of online therapy services. We match school caseloads to therapist availability to create an optimal schedule.
All contracts have their unique needs and requirements. We manage entire caseloads that include IEP meetings, assessments, direct therapy, and quarterly reporting. Other times we are supplementing existing school therapists with only direct therapy. Anything you might encounter in an on-site placement you can expect in an online placement.
We don’t put limits on what our services can be. We will find a way and look for people to join our team who are engaged and inspired to find solutions to what they once thought impossible.
There is no minimum number of hours required per week, however there is evidence that a minimum of 8-10 hours per week leads to higher confidence, quicker transitions between activities, students and schools, and less reliance on technical support. Preference will be given to therapists who are able to work a greater number of hours. You must also have the ability and capacity to repeat the school schedule week after week in order to develop a relationship with your assigned students.
Yes, you may continue to serve any existing private clients or clients generated through an outside company.
Online therapy is growing and so is TinyEYE! We continue to have opportunities beyond direct therapy. Some of these are leadership positions, trainers, and project roles within TinyEYE. These positions and project opportunities are awarded to those who excel at their Confirmation of Excellence audits and indicate an interest in increased involvement.
All therapists are paid monthly for the previous calendar month. As a contractor, zero deductions are taken. It is the responsibility of the therapist to manage this.
Yes. You will be an independent contractor working with TinyEYE students. Liability insurance is in the best interest of the therapist. There are various options for affordable insurance through your National Organizations (ASHA, SAC, NBCOT, CAOT).
Yes. Every Speech-Language Pathologist and Occupational Therapist requires full and valid licensure in the state/province in which they reside, in addition to where the student is located (if different). TinyEYE therapists are required to maintain their home state/provincial licensure at their own expense. Through mutual agreement, TinyEYE will cover the cost of additional licensure as needed to serve additional caseloads.
Any information included in your application will be immediately available to our hiring team. As soon as there is an opportunity that matches your licensing and availability, a member of the team will contact you by phone or email to set up an interview, which will be conducted via Video. The interview will take approximately one hour.
The time between your interview and a contract match will vary depending on the availability of contracts, the number of applicants being interviewed and the anticipated start date of the client. For a better idea of a time frame, please ask your interviewer.
Our initial training consists of three steps:
- Self-directed training that includes reading, videos, and assignments.
- A one-on-one session focused on TinyEYE platform training with one of our Trainers.
- Cultural Training slideshow to give you a thorough understanding of what we are all about, how we operate and how to be successful within TinyEYE!
In addition to the initial TinyEYE Training, SLPs and OTs will receive a discounted rate to unlimited CEU courses through our partnership with an outside provider. You will also receive ongoing mentorship and support through your Primary Support Leader and the TinyEYE Team.
TinyEYE offers ongoing support and mentorship throughout your career! As you start with TinyEYE, you will meet each month for the first three months and then move to quarterly meetings with your Primary Support Leader. Their goal is to provide feedback and coaching to help you grow as an online therapist with TinyEYE. If you encounter technical challenges, we have a technical support team available whenever therapy is being delivered.
All you need is a high-speed internet connection, a headset with attached microphone, and a computer with a webcam. Most laptops come equipped with an internal webcam, however if you are running a desktop computer or are providing OT services, you may need to purchase an external camera.
