As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic presented a wide range of challenges for school administrators, therapists, and educators alike. Pediatric Therapeutic Services (PTS) is dedicated to developing and delivering programs that help students catch up and build the skills they need to succeed without overwhelming teachers or therapists.
To find out how we can support your school, learn about PTS’s Director of Clinical Services, Jennifer Cancro, and her success with implementing our proprietary Pencil Power™ program at a school district in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
Most Students Showed a 20% Improvement with Just 30 Minutes per Week
At the end of the first Pencil Power™ program, the team conducted a post-screening and found that 116 students were eligible for additional support. Every child had progressed, and most students in the district showed a 20-25% improvement in handwriting with an average of 20% in skill development.
At this point, the team determined which students needed another small-group program. Only 12 students needed a more individualized Tier 3 intervention for an additional six weeks. In the end, only seven students required an IEP/were eligible for special education and related services.
Not only did every student receive the support they needed to develop these necessary skills, but PTS helped the district contain costs by ensuring only the right students ended up on therapy caseloads.
