One of Soliant's clients, located near Angleston, TX, is interviewing bilingual Speech-language pathologists for the upcoming school year.

- Evaluate students in areas of speech, language and hearing
- Provide diagnostic/evaluation testing for students not meeting the rubrics of speech screening.
- Staff education and Collaboration:
- Inform and collaborate with classroom teachers to attain goals and objectives of the special education program, with the aim of using speech and language services to support learning outcomes
- Share instructional ideas that are appropriate for exceptional students within the classroom
- Ensure that each student in the program has necessary evaluation records in his/her permanent folder.
