PTS Acts as an Extension of Your Related Services Program
Typical staffing agencies place therapists in schools and quickly depart. That means there is no one left to facilitate communication and collaboration between clinicians, teachers, and administrators. Ultimately, students lose out on the opportunity to access the services they need and program effectiveness declines.
Our decades of experience have shown us that this approach fails to provide students, providers, or administrators with the resources they need to succeed. So, we take a different route. After placing qualified clinicians in a school, our Clinical Directors continue to oversee the day-to-day program operations and provide clinicians with access to support.
Integrated Supports and Collaborative Programming
When it comes to delivering school-based therapy and related services, we know that students benefit most when clinicians learn from each other and work together to integrate the support they provide. We facilitate collaboration among the independent contractors who work alongside us, so all students benefit, especially those with complex, interconnected needs.
Reduced Outplacements, Special Education Referrals, and Costs
By carefully assessing and addressing the root cause of each student’s concerns and matching them with the appropriate support, we reduce unnecessary referrals or costly outplacements and contain special education costs, too.
Support More Students Fully With Our Whole-Child Approach & MTSS Model
Our Whole-Child Approach to school-based therapy and related services is a philosophy based on the idea that integrating related services is the best way to help students in both special and general education, as well as those with multiple areas of concern.
To bring this approach into the classroom, we apply a Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) Model to school-based therapy and related services. This data-driven approach to school-based interventions matches students with three tiers of support.
The Whole-Child Approach and MTSS Model work together to improve the overall quality of treatment because fewer students end up on therapy caseloads. That means therapists can spend more time providing services and training teachers to address common concerns at the classroom level.
Our Approach in Action: The Therapeutic EcoSystem™
To implement our various approaches and models, we use an integrated network of Teams, Tools, and Technology that make up what we call The Therapeutic EcoSystem™:
