PresenceLearning’s live online Behavior Intervention Groups are designed to help schools meet the growing need for behavioral skill building in school settings–for all students, not just those with identified disabilities. An online solution enables schools to serve more students than is possible when limited to in-person, onsite therapy. And, working with online therapists using familiar technology, can reduce the stigma often associated with onsite therapy putting students at ease and helping them talk more openly about their problems.
PresenceLearning works closely with onsite school counselors, social workers, and/or school psychologists to assign students to the appropriate Behavior Intervention Group, each of which is led by a highly trained school psychologist or licensed clinical social worker from PresenceLearning’s network of licensed clinicians with school-based experience.
Each program is 12-weeks and includes three students, ideally at the same grade level or stage of learning and development. Students do not need to attend the same school to be grouped together.
I’ve had parents recently thank us for offering teletherapy groups and tell us how much their children enjoy it. The students especially like the anonymity of the process—they know they won’t run into their psychologist out in the community so they are more open.*
I was impressed with how quickly our PresenceLearning counselor was able to establish rapport and move towards the real issues with each of our students.*
