Join our dynamic and supportive team of Infant Development Specialists (IDS) serving San Mateo and San Francisco counties. We offer rewarding opportunities to serve families of infants and toddlers with developmental delays or identified disabilities. Understanding that young children learn in the context of relationships with the important people in their lives, our work focuses on promoting those bonds, and helping parents and other caregivers feel empowered to support their child’s development within the context of their daily routines. At this time we are primarily providing services using tele-intervention, but we anticipate a return to offering more sessions in person as home visitors. Opportunities are available to provide specialized instruction in our full inclusion early intervention program in Pacifica. All positions start as part-time when you come on board and there are opportunities to work full-time as you build your caseload.
