Benefits of Working Alongside PTS

Collaborative & Cross-disciplinary Team
When you engage with PTS, you also engage with a team of skilled and passionate professionals from a wide range of disciplines. Through collaborative teamwork and an integrated approach, you will provide each student with the right level of support, so they can access their education in the least restrictive environment.

At PTS, we apply an MTSSS approach to school-based therapy and related services. This approach includes multiple tiers of support, from the classroom level to small groups and individual therapy. It gives those who need it a boost and decreases unnecessary referrals, keeping therapists’ caseloads more manageable.
