Spaulding has been a leading provider of educational, residential, therapeutic, and foster care programs and services for children and youth for 150 years.  Our focus is to provide students with neurological, emotional, behavioral, learning, and developmental challenges with a safe, supportive and intensely therapeutic environment.  We provide a place of healing and growth, with a focus on the whole child.  Our approach is student centered and trauma informed with special emphasis on social and emotional learning through programs such as Choose Love.  Our classrooms are small, with 8 to 10 students and a variety of ages in a non-traditional learning environment.

Each person is engaged in contributing toward our goal of providing a strong foundation to support our students.   The SLP will provide direct services, consultation, supervision, and support to our exceptional and diverse group of students that we are fortunate to have here at Spaulding.
