We want to be part of your team!
While you're doing the big-picture stuff, let us tackle the processes, planning and people finding for your special education needs.
Our co-founders got their start in as special education professionals who realized a growing need for something more than the standard staffing service could supply. They formed their own company that combined assessments, consultations, and recruiting for full-time and part-time needs for therapists and counselors. Soon their services were being used by public, private, and charter schools offering staffing solutions with a focus on quality services.
While continuing to expand its reach nationwide, Specialized has maintained its small business core values, keeping schools in compliance while supplying them with talented professionals who are committed to improving the lives of students, parents, and communities. With more than 50 years of combined experience in education management, special education services, and staffing excellence, our expertise and commitment are our biggest strengths.
Powering our operation is our proprietary Online System that can be accessed from single-classroom charter schools to the largest school districts in the country. This allows your staff to manage your cases in the most efficient, secure way possible.
Our online system is a secure and sophisticated link between our providers, your schools, and our staff that delivers instant communication at the click of your mouse or the swipe of your finger 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The system allows access to account managers, our providers, and our clients.
Performance & Standards
Therapy comes in the form of smiles, high-fives, and fist bumps, but also in hard data and results. At Specialized, we partner with you to solve your most complex workforce issues. We treat every student and every school as individuals and never try to apply a one-size-fits-all solution to your needs.
We firmly believe in open dialogue to understand what your school requires and how we can build a custom staffing solution to turn staffing shortages into areas of strength.
How We Work
Proud to be Your Partner
When you partner with us, you take out the stress of hiring professionals for highly-specialized positions without paying a single extra cent. Since our first day on the job, our concept has been straight and to the point: We partner with schools and families to provide the top professionals in the industry to get students the services they need.
Contracts in Place
Our legal team does more than dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s; they ensure we follow all IRS rules of employment from the moment a provider comes on campus until the day you part ways. Our account managers and recruiters work directly with your administrative team to find the best possible fit, focusing specifically on experience and your campus needs.
Our proprietary online system ensures your ability to contact us and our providers 24/7. It’s an all-in-one service that allows you to manage your cases and stay in touch with us with the highest level of cybersecurity in place. Once we’ve signed a contract, we’ll get you set up in the Specialized Online System and schedule a short training session.
Let's Get to Work!
We bust our butts behind the scenes to keep everything running smoothly from end to end. We build your team and get your services rolling as soon as you give us the green light, and stay in touch as much as you need us through phone calls, emails, and messaging via our online system.
SCHOOLS & DISTRICTS WE SERVE
We proudly serve a variety of schools and settings including:
Need One Assessment? No problem.
Whether you need a single assessment or a small caseload for counseling, we are the solution you’ve been looking for. Just like you, we understand that every student is important and needs service. It really is just that simple. Whether you need a service provider for an hour, a week, or a school year, we are here to help.
temporary or long term assignments
difficult cases that need specialized expertise
Commitment to Excellence
Our team of special education professionals brings their passion to everything they do. Through our years in the industry, we understand that schools and school districts don’t always have the time or the expertise necessary to find the perfect provider for every open position. So we decided to become that solution, combining recruiting and placement prowess with assessment and consultation services to become a one-stop-shop for all your special education needs.
Compliance & Support
Healthcare to School Transition Support
There are lots of brilliant therapists out there who have never worked in a school environment but are more than capable of doing amazing things for your students. We provide transition training for these talented healthcare-savvy professionals as they move to the education environment. We provide them with 1-on-1 mentors from their own special service field to oversee their work, guide them, and help them transform into valuable additions to your campus.
QUALITY | EXPERIENCE | EXPERTISE
No two service providers are the same, but there are some things that set ours apart from the crowd. The three pillars of excellence we pride our staffing services on are quality, experience, and expertise. We don’t just look for service providers to “plug and play” into your staff openings. Our providers are rigorously vetted from the moment they apply to ensure they meet our expectations and your specific needs. Experience is a major factor in these decisions; we pick our team based on their experience with school-aged clients, their knowledge of special education as a whole, and how well they can fit into a school’s unique culture.
My school has been using this company for two years now. Each assessment is professionally done and completed within timelines. The contacts (administrative team) are very knowledgeable and thorough with each assignment that we have requested. I have come to rely on the recommendations that have helped the students to be successful academically and behaviorally in the classroom. I highly recommend the services that are offered through Specialized Assessment & Consulting.
