Digitally Delivering Special Education in Tennessee

Districts across the country struggle to deliver on the promise of special education for the approximately 6 to 7 million students in need of special education services. A shortage of 5,000 to 7,000 speech-language pathologists is just one piece of the puzzle. The Learning Counsel met with PresenceLearning to learn how online therapy options work and can help address these critical needs for students. Benton County School District in Tennessee is just one district capitalizing on the advantages of online services. Pam Chmelik, Director of Special Needs for the district, describes how PresenceLearning delivers live, online therapy to her students.
