At PTS the rewards are in the smiling young faces we’re privileged to work with each and every day…and the skills and self-confidence that this relationship enables. That’s what it’s all about for us. Our commitment to your children is the foundation of our business. They are the motivation behind the innovation and best practices that enable us to deliver pediatric therapeutic services at the highest possible level; a level that PTS has been recognized for excellence regionally and nationally by the business community as well. We are grateful for these awards and accolades, which we consider a mere reflection of our true rewards, which also includes the ability to work daily alongside a dynamic corporate team and a network of truly dedicated therapists. It is largely due to their commitment, their standards, and their contribution that PTS  has been singled out for a long list of achievements, including:
