When KIPP experienced an unexpected service issue, Therapy Source embraced the opportunity to step up and shine, by providing (according to Tipson), “exceptional attention, and addressing all of [KIPP’s] needs.” Tipson also notes that
Therapy Source has had a positive impact on her own job role. “The schools trust me to fill their vacancies with quality providers, and by working with Therapy Source, I’m able to meet their needs,” she shares.
Special education and related services staffing is a naturally hefty expense for many charter schools and districts across the country, but Tipson attests, “the quality of the therapists [Therapy Source] provides makes the prices worth it.” In fact, Tipson notes, “Therapy Source has been able to provide quality therapists – and that is not always the case with other agencies.”
KIPP expansion continues – with five additional schools planned to open by 2019– and anticipates an ongoing relationship with Therapy Source as the organization serves more and more students in the Philadelphia area.
Based on the amiable, highly communicative and hard-working partnership between KIPP and Therapy Source, Tipson would not hesitate to recommend Therapy Source to other schools.
