Pediatric Therapeutic Services (PTS) is much more than a staffing agency. We provide a comprehensive array of services to schools and districts that partner with us. From our unique placement process and therapy tools to our collaborative approach to services, we help school administrators, therapists, and other service providers put students first.
What Sets PTS Apart From Other Staffing Agencies for School-Based Providers?
Typical staffing agencies place therapists and other service providers in a school or district and quickly depart. That means there is no one left to facilitate communication and collaboration.
When this happens, students lose out on the opportunity to access the services they need, whether that be extra instruction at the classroom level, a small group intervention, or individualized support on a therapy caseload.
At PTS, our decades of experience have helped us see that the approach many staffing agencies take doesn’t work. It falls short and is unable to give students, providers, or administrators what they need to succeed. Instead, we continue to provide the providers who engage with us access to support from our Lead Therapists and Clinical Directors.
You can read more about how we differ from other agencies in our interviews with our partnering therapists, many of whom struggled to find the right fit with a traditional agency before engaging with us.
How Does PTS Help Schools Improve the Effectiveness of Their Special Education Programs?
One of our goals at PTS is to help our partnering districts improve the effectiveness of their special education programming while containing costs. To achieve this, we begin by gathering data through our proprietary billing system. This includes details about how many and what type of referrals are coming in regularly.
Our Clinical Directors analyze this information and can make suggestions for improvement, such as school-wide or classroom-level interventions to address common areas of concern. With these data-driven insights in hand, school administrators can make real-time adjustments to their related services program. Additionally, PTS can help address common issues at the school or classroom level.
What Is PTS’s Collaborative Approach to School-Based Therapy & Related Services?
When it comes to giving students the support they need, therapists and other service providers need to work together to address students with multiple areas of concern.
Our collaborative approach and consultative model facilitate communication and collaboration between service providers from these disciplines. Professionals can learn from one another and work together to integrate and coordinate the delivery of their services.
By working together and learning from one another, they can better address the root causes of concern for individual students while also supporting students in the general education environment. In addition to helping more students, including those with complex, interconnected needs, our approach reduces unnecessary referrals and contains special education costs.
