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.
