Required Education & Qualifications for Working as a School-Based PT Alongside PTS
To be eligible for an independent contractor position partnering with PTS, you need an undergraduate degree in physical therapy or a closely related field, such as a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree (DPT) from a program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE). Once you’ve completed the necessary requirements, you need to pass the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE®).
If you have these credentials, have worked in a school setting, or are interested in doing so, engaging as an independent contractor with PTS can help you advance your PT career.
Work, Learn, & Grow With a Collaborative Team of Dedicated Therapists
While working as an independent contractor PT alongside PTS, you can expect to collaborate with a team. By coordinating and consulting with fellow PTs and therapists from other disciplines, you can build relationships, provide students with more holistic care, and learn how to implement effective interventions.
Help More Students in Both Special & General Education With PTS’s Multi-Tiered Systems of Support Approach
Our Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) approach focuses on classroom-wide interventions that support students with multiple areas of concern in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE), as well as the entire class.
To facilitate these interventions and bring therapy into general education, PTs who engage with us often train teachers and support staff to address general student needs at the classroom level. This approach not only contains referrals, but it helps more students in both special and general education.
