Pediatric Occupational Therapist – Indiana Early Intervention

Job Description

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a great salary for doing full-time Early Intervention work?  Or are you the kind of person who wants a little more risk — and possible upside — to get paid on a per-billable-hour basis?  Salary or pay-per-visit, if you’re doing full-time First Steps work in Indiana – the choice is now yours!

So if you live anywhere in Lake County, Indiana and want to get paid a great wage to help little kids unlock their potential – we should talk!  And if you live within 30 minutes of the state line in Illinois and don’t want to deal with the headaches there – trust me…we should talk!   Because at Milestone, we recognize your job is to be a great therapist, and it’s our job to take care of the headaches behind the scenes.

In the end, Milestone is looking to hire multiple Full-Time Occupational Therapists to join our Indiana First Steps team that covers Lake County, Indiana!  And if you don’t have your Indiana license yet, we’ll help you through the process of getting it — in less than 4 weeks in most cases!
