Fog and Nature

want to join our team?

applications now open for an amazing OT!

Bearfoot OT is looking for a nature-loving, dynamic pediatric outdoor OT to join the team in August 2021 as a part time employee. 

If you are….

  • Highly motivated

  • Hard working 

  • Creative and flexible

  • Communicative

  • Organized 

  • Looking for a TOTALLY nontraditional pediatric OT job

 

....then this might be the position for you!

Bearfoot OT offers OUTDOOR individual occupational therapy for children ages 2-15, social skills groups, and therapeutic summer camp. Bearfoot’s services are offered 100% outdoors at three sites around the Bay Area, rain or shine (so get ready to get muddy, wet, and dirty!). 

Bearfoot OT serves a variety of populations including individuals with developmental delays, ASD, sensory processing differences, ADHD, ADD, anxiety, learning disorders, self regulation difficulties and more. We do not provide a one-size-fits-all type of therapy. Intervention is individualized, client focused, evidence based, collaborative and comprehensive.

This is a part-time position with the opportunity to increase hours and caseload over time. The current role requires 2 afternoons a week in SF and/or Marin to provide weekly individual OT sessions and lead social groups. In this position you are responsible for providing in person occupational therapy services to children, so travel is a requirement.

  • Planning and implementing 1:1 treatment 

  • Planning and leading social groups

  • Daily documentation

  • Written home programs

  • Progress reports

  • Goal writing

  • Supervision of volunteers and/or Level 1 students that assist social groups

  • Parent meetings over Zoom or on the phone

  • Frequent communication with families over email, phone, Google Classroom, and Loom videos

  • Pediatric occupational therapy: 1 year (Preferred)

 

Application process:

1. Send the following to admin@bearfootoccupationaltherapy.com:

  • a 5 minute (max) introduction and cover letter VIDEO (via Loom or other method)

  • your resume

  • two references (employer or coworker)

 

In your video, make sure to share WHO you are, WHY you are interested in joining Bearfoot, and WHAT item would always be in your outdoor OT adventure backpack. 

 

2. First round interview to see if it’s a good fit

3. Second round interview 

4. In person nature-based treatment session with pediatric client 

Please do not apply if you:

  • are not willing to work in person in SF or Marin

  • will not have 2 full weekday afternoons available starting in August

Due to demand, not all emailed applications will be followed up individually with a first round interview.
