Four Years of Collaboration with Online Speech Therapy - PresenceLearning

The Challenge

The district initially needed help covering a maternity leave for speech-language services, and later needed support providing psychoeducational assessments.

The Solution

The district implemented PresenceLearning’s live, online speech-language therapy services in 2014 for the middle/high school and later added PL’s online psychoeducational assessments for middle and high school students.

The Results

By partnering with PresenceLearning providers, students receive consistent speech-language therapy services and psychoeducational assessments. The district’s onsite school psychologist now has the bandwidth to focus on providing therapy for students and other responsibilities.

We continue to enjoy the services that PresenceLearning provides. Students are engaged and their needs are being met. Hinsdale School District is very happy with the partnership we have with PresenceLearning.

The Story

Of Hinsdale School District

Hinsdale School District, located in a rural southwest New Hampshire community, serves students in Pre-K12. Hinsdale School District first partnered with PresenceLearning to provide coverage for online speech-language therapy and assessments when an onsite SLP was out on maternity leave. Since 2014, PresenceLearning Care Network providers have partnered with faculty and staff to provide ongoing therapy and evaluations for students, and participate in IEP meetings.

In 2014, Hinsdale School District became the first district in the region to implement PresenceLearning’s online psychoeducational services. An online school psychologist from PresenceLearning conducts all psychoeducational assessments for middle and high school students. Partnering with PresenceLearning for psychoeducational assessments has allowed the district’s onsite school psychologist to conduct more ongoing therapy with students and take on new responsibilities.

The use of online speech-language therapy services and psychoeducational assessments has helped the district ensure students are receiving the services they need and provide more efficiency in its special education program. PresenceLearning acknowledged Hinsdale School District for innovative thinking and success with online therapy services in the annual PL Awards of Excellence.

Now that an online school psychologist completes assessments for our middle and high school students, our onsite school psychologist has more time for ongoing therapy and other responsibilities.
