Los Angeles Charter School Adopts Online Speech Therapy

When several high school students began to resist or refuse to attend speech-language therapy at Synergy Academies, Sommer Jones, Director of Special Education and Student Services, investigated and found that the sessions were not well-aligned with students’ IEP goals. She decided to try PresenceLearning’s live online speech therapy with one student. This successful pilot led to wider adoption at the high school and middle school level, with 94% of the students in the program now making good progress against their goals.
