Meet Our Related Services Team
Boothby Therapy Services has grown to become a team of over 100 outstanding occupational therapists, speech therapists, teachers of the visually impaired, school psychologists, and physical therapists. We have a team of highly qualified and professional individuals who lead our Related Services Management Team. Even as the company grows, we make sure that we never lose our emphasis on what schools and providers need to be successful.
As a school contracting with BTS, you will work with a dedicated team of highly qualified providers within a framework of professional support. BTS providers simply become your providers, active and professional members of your special education team that fit in so seamlessly with your staff that others may never know that they come from BTS.
As a provider employed by BTS, you will know who makes the decisions that affect your career and we’ll know you, your spouse, kids and occasionally even your pet! It’s a nice blend between being small enough to know you and large enough to be able to offer you the work, pay, and benefits you need.
Our Related Services Management team provides hands-on support to each one of the providers we employ. This kind of support that allows you to focus on your passion—serving children with special needs.
