Sonia Shankman Orthogenic School of Chicago, IL is seeking to hire full-time Therapist/Case Managers to provide individual, group, and family therapy as well as case management services to children and adolescents with severe emotional, social, and/or behavioral issues. If you are a Licensed Psychologist, Clinical Social Worker, School Social Worker, Clinical Professional Counselor, Marriage Family Therapist, or School Psychologist that wants to make a difference, this may be the therapy/case management position for you!

We offer a competitive salary and phenomenal comprehensive benefits including medical, dental, vision insurance on Day 1 of employment; and annually up to 7 weeks of paid school breaks, 6 days of paid personal, 10 days of paid sick, and 10 paid holidays, company-paid short-term and long-term disability insurance, company-paid basic life and AD&D insurance, a 403(b) retirement plan with Roth option, FSA, HSA, an employee assistance program, 529 college savings program, and tuition assistance for obtaining professional clinical licensure.


The Sonia Shankman Orthogenic School (O-School) is a private, non-public school that provides educational and therapeutic services to students, grades K-12. For more than a century, the O-School has provided a culture of support, a safe haven, and a path to hope for children and adolescents with significant emotional and social issues (many of whom are also on the autism spectrum). We provide a supportive, nurturing environment that provides each child with individualized treatment that allows them to reach their full potential.

We are confident that you will find our school to be a child-centered and extensively rewarding place to work. We highly value our talented staff of clinicians and educators who work together to achieve a singular academic and therapeutic experience for the students in our care.


As a Therapist/Case Manager, you will utilize your knowledge, experience, and training to provide intensive, individualized individual, family, and group psychotherapy, as well as case management, to students with a diverse range of needs and diagnoses. Most of your time is spent providing those direct therapeutic services, as well as documenting your clinical work, communicating with families and external treatment providers, and collaborating and consulting with a multidisciplinary team for each student. In your clinical work with each student, you contribute to and consider the Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) or Individual Academic Plans (IAPs) and develop and monitor treatment goals to address each student's and family's particular needs.

Your excellent interpersonal skills assist you as you interact frequently with parents, faculty, and other essential partners in the treatment of your students. Because the O-School relies on an immersive therapeutic milieu, you will be pivotal in helping ensure that activities, events, and interactions across the school are clinically informed.

You write and track IEP or IAP and treatment goals and narrative progress reports. You will also complete IM+CANS mental health assessments, as well as progress notes for all therapy sessions. Though this job can be challenging, it is also extremely rewarding, especially as you see your students make strides and become increasingly independent and capable.

This is a great position for clinicians:

  • At all stages of their career

  • Who like to work as part of a team rather than alone

  • Who are interested in providing high-caliber clinical care in the context of special education

  • Who are energized by really interesting, complicated students who will tug at your heart

Onsite training is provided in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI). Clinical supervision is regularly provided and highly valued; this includes opportunity to accumulate supervision hours for those completing licensure. Depending on experience, opportunities exist to train staff and supervise graduate externs.


  • Psychologist (Ph.D. or Psy.D.), Clinical Social Worker, School Social Worker, Clinical Professional Counselor, or Marriage Family Therapist who is fully licensed or accruing hours to be fully licensed within time frame determined at hire

  • Licensed by the Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation as a Clinical Psychologist, LCPC, LPC, LCSW, LSW, LMFT, or ALMFT

  • Master's or Doctorate degree

  • Experience with students with Emotional Disabilities and/or Autism

  • Trauma informed clinical experience preferred


If you are a Psychologist (Ph.D. or Psy.D.), Clinical Social Worker, School Social Worker, Clinical Professional Counselor, or Marriage Family Therapist and feel that you would be right for this Therapist/Case Manager position? Do you have strong communication skills?

Are you organized and able to balance a varied caseload? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of children and adolescents? If so, you may be perfect for this therapy/case management position!
