A Pediatric Therapy Partner Your District Can Trust

As a small, local, SLP-operated company, we’re not a large therapy staffing company that’s headquartered in another state. We’re dedicated to providing excellent therapy and customized service alongside our partners and communities here in Southern California. 

Let us provide the expertise in school-based pediatric therapy so you can focus on everything else that goes into running your school.

1. What is a certified NPA and does Radiant Kids Therapy meet this criteria?

Certified NPA stands for Certified Non-Public Agency. In California, private organizations with this certification can provide special education or related services on behalf of a school district. 

Yes, Radiant Kids Therapy is a certified NPA and maintains all licenses and records to comply with ongoing oversight from the State of California. This program was set up to allow districts to contract out certain services to meet budget or staffing needs while ensuring students with disabilities receive high-quality services. 

We take care of completing the background verification for all of our therapists. This includes verifying licenses and credentials, plus performing DOJ and FBI fingerprinting and background checks. This is part of the process we need to perform for our NPA certification.

Radiant Kids Therapy carries active liability insurance, malpractice insurance, and workers’ compensation insurance policies. If your district has other specific coverage requirements, just let us know what you need! 

For clinical questions, team members will typically reach out to our experienced mentors and support team at Radiant Kids. This saves your staff time and allows team members to tap into our team’s knowledge and experience.

If the question relates to something district-specific — like a district policy, legal question, or school staff — the team member will reach out to the appropriate contact in your district administration. 

Working together to meet and exceed compliance standards starts from the very beginning of our relationship with your district. Typically, when we begin the contract, we set up a meeting to understand your district’s specific policies and procedures. This is also a great time to share any IEPs needing special attention. From our side, the meeting is attended by the clinician placed at your school plus a seasoned member from our supervision team.

We also strive to check in with the district IEP team at the beginning and throughout the contract. This helps us align with your district’s IEP policies and stay up-to-date on student needs and concerns. As an extra layer of support, the team at Radiant Kids Therapy collaborates to problem-solve and ensure compliance around high-profile IEP cases.

Ultimately, we’re here to back you up as the school administrator who has the final authority on compliance for the IEPs in your school district. 

We’re based out of San Diego County and Riverside County, soon to include additional parts of Southern CA, and are available to provide on-site speech, occupational, and physical therapy services in schools throughout much of Southern California. In the event your district is located beyond our current service area for on-site therapy, consider our virtual therapy program for providing services to students in schools throughout California. We’ve been successfully supporting kids and students virtually for several years now.

We frequently hire experienced therapists who can hit the ground running and ensure our team has the depth of experience to support all clinical, IEP, and compliance needs. 

When we do hire therapists who are new to working in schools, we only choose the best. Then, we set them (and you!) up for success by going above and beyond to support, train and mentor them. This includes:

  • Matching them with an experienced supervisor for all school-based clinical, IEP, and compliance needs
  • Training and support to understand and follow California IEP compliance standards
  • General clinical resources to support clinical needs

Yes, we agree — it’s such a challenge to find and hire high-quality therapists! At Radiant Kids Therapy, our big focus is providing excellent therapy services for kids and exceptional support for our therapists. This dedication to excellence has built us a positive reputation that therapists want to be a part of. This includes being a great employer by focusing on strong clinical support and an established positive company culture. On top of our stellar reputation, we’ve refined a process around recruiting, screening, and hiring great therapists.

It’s hard for a school district to provide that same level of attention to finding and supporting therapists. 

We love and have success in hiring SLPs, OTs, and PTs with prior experience in the school setting– many of them with years or even decades of school-based experience.

For any therapists we hire who don’t have prior school experience, though, we are highly selective about who we choose and have an extensive mentoring and support program to help prepare and support therapists who are transitioning to working in the schools for the first time.
