School Districts: Why contract with VOCES?
VOCES is a well-respected provider of professional services for special education with a proven track record of successful outcomes, expert therapists, competitive rates, and a commitment to supporting our employees.
Demonstrating a Proven Track Record
Since 2005, VOCES has placed highly qualified and competent bilingual speech therapists in Arizona school districts. As a knowledgeable and reliable vendor, we help our clients meet IDEA and IEP requirements, in this often hard-to-staff area. As an Arizona small business, we provide personal attention and customized services for our clients.
Providing Expert Bilingual Speech Pathologists
VOCES therapists are licensed and ready to start working for your school district.
We focus exclusively on providing Spanish speech-language services to school districts, and we provide professional development and growth opportunities for our employees.
Offering Competitive Rates
At VOCES, our rates are competitive with the largest national and state providers of speech pathology. But our services are often more tailored for Arizona communities; our therapists are often residents of the areas they serve.
Currently, our clients include schools and districts in the Tucson and Yuma areas as well as the border cities of Nogales and Douglas.
Saving School Districts Time and Money
Our speech pathologists and technicians provide services in the child’s native language (as mandated by IDEA 2004), which is the most effective method of addressing speech and language delays. VOCES therapists communicate with parents in Spanish, which increases parent satisfaction with school district services.
We’ve seen that satisfaction is higher because parents can understand more about their child’s challenges and therapies, and therefore they can be more involved. In addition, IDEA mandates that services be provided in a child’s language whenever possible. We help Arizona school districts meet this mandate. Our speech pathologists and technicians not only provide services in the child’s language, but they are also specially trained in conducting bilingual evaluations and intervention.
Giving Back to The Profession
Part of our mission as a company is developing the bilingual speech pathology profession through recruiting, scholarships, and service. To provide the highest quality services, we believe we must contribute to developing new professionals in our field.
VOCES Bilingual Speech Pathology, LLC, has awarded more than $11,000 in scholarships to Arizona undergraduate and graduate students at accredited undergraduate and graduate communication disorders programs.
VOCES therapists bring our school district valuable expertise in bilingual assessment and therapy. Our district receives quality therapy that results in positive outcomes for students. I would highly recommend them.Lorri Andrews, CCC-SLP
