Many administrators and SpEd Directors in rural areas have difficulty finding enough speech, occupational, and mental health therapists for all of their students who are in need of services. Others, while able to find clinicians, cannot find those of quality or the specialization the student needs. And still others, even when they land a quality therapist, cannot retain that clinician throughout the school year, which undermines the student’s progress. Frustrated schools seek out traditional Therapy Staffing Agencies to find therapists to fill the void.
However top-quality therapists generally find students closer to home, which leaves clinicians of inferior quality as those available to travel longer distances to meet with students onsite. And even these therapists, when found, command a premium price to offset their increased transportation expense in rural areas. The distinct advantage of an Online Therapy Staffing Company is that these schools can now secure top-quality therapists for a reasonable price, and maintain consistency with their students by eliminating traditional barriers of distance, mobility, and time.
