Lone Pine Unified School District in Inyo County, California, uses PresenceLearning online speech therapy as a component in a holistic approach to early intervention and literacy. As Dr. Sean A. Cianfarano, Superintendent, explains, “We have a pretty high percentage of primary kids who have speech issues that are so low it impacts their English language arts. They can’t speak, but they’re supposed to read and write? If they can’t read and write, they can’t be successful. I look at PresenceLearning as a partner with us for literacy more than I do speech. That’s how every school should be approaching it.”
