ABOUT WORKING WITH PTS

WORKING WITH PTS

BUILD YOUR SCHOOL-BASED THERAPY CAREER AS AN INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR

Through our strong network of Independent Contractors (ICs), PTS provides quality treatment and effective interventions to students throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.

When you’re an IC, you are your own business. Because every therapist’s situation is unique, practicing as an IC isn’t right for everyone. But consider its advantages:

PTS CLINICAL DIRECTORS MENTOR YOU AND HELP YOU GROW AS A THERAPIST

Whatever your therapy discipline—Physical or Occupational TherapySpeech Language PathologyPsychology, or Behavioral Health—our Clinical Directors are close at hand to help and director you. They’re always no farther away than a phone call or email, and can even join you on-site if necessary.

As part of managing our clients’ related service programs on a day-to-day basis, PTS Clinical Directors, each of whom has years of experience as a school-based therapist, will support you so you are as successful as possible. If needed, they will:

  • Offer advice and feedback as you work with students, making your interventions all the more effective.
  • Consult with you when you’re dealing with more complex cases to bring about better outcomes for the student, their families, and the school.
  • Advocate for you with teachers, administrators, and students’ families and caregivers, as needed, so you’re not left to handle difficult situations on your own.
  • Share their firsthand experience working as an IC so you avoid potentially costly or even career-ending mistakes.
  • Strategize with you about your career journey, pointing you toward ways to learn, grow, and achieve, professionally and financially.

PTS’ LENDING LIBRARY GIVES YOU READY ACCESS TO MUST-HAVE RESOURCES

Our extensive, up-to-date Lending Library of evaluations, assessments, test forms, and other materials—all field-tested and many designed by therapists—means PTS clinicians can use the resources standard in school-based therapy careers without having to hunt them down or pay for them out of pocket.

In-demand resources available to you include:

Left to your own resources, you’d spend several hundred dollars (and in some cases, close to $1,000) acquiring any one of these assessments and evaluations. But thanks to your access to PTS’ Lending Library as one of our clinicians, you can get any of these and many more for free, and can use them for up to 30 days.

Start by filling out an online request form. Within 24 business hours, you can either pick up what you’ve requested from our main office in Conshohocken, or have us ship it directly to you.

SCHOOL-BASED ACADEMY EQUIPS YOU TO SUCCEED IN EDUCATION SETTINGS

PTS’ School Based Academy is multi-session, specific training in how to jumpstart a successful career in school-based therapy. Through both on-demand webinars you can watch at your convenience and live, interactive Zoom sessions, you’ll get the practical knowledge you need, whether you’re a brand new practitioner or coming to the schools from another clinical setting.

You’ll gain a practical understanding of school-based practice’s central issues, including:

  • Building relationships so teachers, staff, families, and caregivers become your allies for quality student care.
  • Managing your caseload and schedule with maximum efficiency.
  • Collecting and analyzing data to document students’ achievements and your interventions’ effectiveness.
  • Delivering excellent treatment and care when you’re given limited space and resources.
  • Writing relevant, measurable, and legally defensible Individualized Education Program (IEP) goals squarely focused on students’ progress.
