The Details: PTS Used BudgetWatch™ Analytics to Identify the Source of the Referrals
When teachers at Delaware County School District reported that nearly half of their students were experiencing significant difficulty with letter formation, PTS used their proprietary BudgetWatch™ software to pinpoint where the problem was coming from.
Through PTS’s Team, Tools, and Technology Approach, we identified the problem quickly and found the:
- Exact source of increases in referrals.
- Specific students impacted.
- Perfect solution to level the playing field.
We implemented PTS’s proprietary program Pencil Power™ in small groups right away. This intensive program was ideally targeted to students who required additional supports without an OT evaluation. This kept handwriting in the realm of regular education, where it belongs.
The Results: OT Handwriting Referrals Dropped by 42% After 6-Week Pencil Power™ Program
At the end of the Pencil Power™ 6-week, supplemental handwriting instruction program, the school district saw a 42% drop in OT referrals.
