Planning Your Business
Let's start with the big picture! Think that contracting ONLY means a full-time contract with a public school? Think again! School contracts can be as flexible as you need them to be. Work when you want, how you want, and where you want in order to reach your financial goals and create work-life balance.
- Identify the different types of school contract customers (i.e., public schools, charter schools, private schools, etc.)
- Identify the different ways you can serve those customers (i.e., teletherapy, part-time, on-demand, etc.)
- Describe how customers may vary in the sales and contracting process
Contracting Nuts and Bolts
Let’s discuss some foundational pieces to consider prior to implementing a school contract. From business entity to NPI to protecting your business to deciding what to charge for your services–let’s break down some (very important ) basics!
- Understand basic business requirements
- Identify legal considerations to protect your business
- Determine your rate to meet your financial needs
Your Sales Strategy
Create a sales plan and implement it with confidence.

- Identify your sales strategy: from locating the need to closing the "sale"

- Implement a smooth and effective onboarding
- Identify customer service strategies to use in your business

- Identify basic renewal strategies and timelines to renew your school contracts every year

Meet your school contracting guide
Hi, I'm Elise Mitchell, M.S., CCC-SLP
My Mission is to Empower SLPs, OTs, & PTs to Serve Schools, On Their Terms.
I have spent over 8 years in the contracting industry, and trust me, I've seen it all. From working in sales and management for a staffing company that left me burnt out to consulting with clinics during COVID—I thought I was done with schools. The low pay, the high caseloads, it was just too much. The tipping point came when I realized I couldn't sustain myself mentally or financially in that system.
Then came 2020, the year that changed everything for me and, hopefully, for you too. An opportunity fell into my lap to work directly with a local school as a contractor. I set my own pay, caseload, and conditions—and guess what? I started enjoying school therapy again. It was a complete game-changer, a breath of fresh air that made me reconsider everything.
And it led to an epiphany: what if other therapists could do the same?
THAT'S WHY I STARTED THIS BUSINESS
Whether you're in rural Missouri like me or anywhere else, schools need consistent speech, occupational, and physical therapy for their students, but are often unable to provide it. This led to my decision to help therapists like you become solid competition for staffing companies, who often pay poorly and provide little support, and end up leaving schools and kids hanging. So that is what I am doing: EQUIPPING THERAPISTS LIKE YOU WITH THE TOOLS YOU NEED TO WORK ON YOUR TERMS.
I've seen this industry from all angles—I've been involved in more than 50 full-time contracts, and I've pitched from the bush regions of Alaska to the second-largest district in America. I bring this experience to everything I create and share...these resources included! Plus, they're designed specifically for SLPs, OTs, & PTs.
Let me help make school therapy enjoyable again for both you and the kids who need us. I'm right here with you every step of the way.
This is possible for you too.
