The therapists have voted! After over 1,500 votes, we have collected what therapists felt like were the best resources and organizations in the world of therapy this year.
Disclaimer: The goal of this blog is to spotlight the many amazing resources we have in the world of therapy using therapist nominations and votes. The demographic of therapists that nominated/voted was limited and does not represent every therapist in the field of therapy. Therapists should not base decisions off of this blog and will need to do due diligence prior to making employment or purchase decisions. This blog should not be misconstrued as endorsement.

I also wanted to share some of the quotes we received about the above:
"SLPs Uncensored Facebook page is not a Facebook page for the faint of heart but it is the only page where I feel like I can ask questions and get immediate answers. The answers are never filtered, my questions are always approved and people are quick to provide mentorship."
"Creative Health Solutions did not let PDPM affect their employees. They stand behind therapy and the good we bring. They support their employees and provide constant communication."
"I've been with Presence Learning for 7 years--I have always been treated well, their platform makes it easy to do my job, I always have work, and I feel like they're leading the way in teletherapy which is great to be a part of."
"I love working for the V.A. and recommend it for fellow SLPs wanting to get into the medical world without compromising retirement and benefits that school therapists get!"
"I wouldn't have a private practice without the Independent Clinician resources!"
"Whimsical Word has the best digital resources--hands down!"
"I went from direct with schools to EBS in 2019. The pay was better, there were less politics, and I had a say on my caseload. It's been great!"
A very special thank you to therapists for making their voices heard throughout this voting process AND to the companies and resources above for making the lives of therapists easier in 2019. Cheers to 2020!
