Why PresenceLearning?

Since 2009, PresenceLearning has established a nationwide network of hundreds of fully qualified behavioral and mental health professionals available live and online to work with students 1:1 or in small groups on:

  • Pre-referral Tier II and Tier III behavior interventions
  • Ability/Cognitive & Achievement assessments—PresenceLearning is the only company authorized by HMH to administer the Woodcock-Johnson IV remotely
  • Social-Emotional & Behavioral evaluations and assessments
  • Functional Behavior Assessments (FBA) and Behavior Intervention Plans (BIP)
  • Direct services as determined by a BIP or an IEP

Our network has highly trained, certified professionals who have a masters of social work, are licensed mental health clinicians, or are school psychologists (with your state’s requisite licenses and/or credentials). Online services from PresenceLearning will enable your school district or education agency to:

  • Provide more individualized care: Student needs can vary widely so we match students with specific clinicians to ensure better care and improved outcomes
  • Fill gaps in your current program or multi-tiered support system: Expand your capacity to lighten caseloads, conduct behavioral assessments, or facilitate interventions
  • Improve flexibility: Schedule times that work best for busy school schedules: during school hours, before and after school, or for check-in/check-out meetings
  • Protect privacy and security: The PresenceLearning platform complies with COPAA and FERPA privacy regulations; online clinicians maintain the same code of conduct and confidentiality practices as on-site services
  • Improve outcomes: Online therapy has been shown to be as effective as—or better than—in-person therapy, especially because many children and teens report a higher level of comfort when interacting with an online clinician
  • Gain insight: real-time metrics show student progress

How do online behavioral & mental health services work?

Using the same evidence-based techniques as on-site professionals, licensed PresenceLearning professionals use our secure, web-based platform to deliver sessions in a location of your choice. The technology requirements are a computer with an Internet connection; PresenceLearning provides the required webcam(s) and headset(s) plus the support to make sure everything works smoothly.

What do school leaders say?

I am pleased with the progress you have made with my student. Since he has started with you he has made 2 new friends, participated in multiple sleepovers and is doing a great job with communicating. This is the most social progress he has ever made and he has been in social skills therapy since he was 6.
