Live Online Speech Therapy - Schools: Benefits for School Districts | PresenceLearning

Why PresenceLearning?

Since 2009, credentialed Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) from PresenceLearning have been providing live, online speech-language therapy to students throughout the U.S. via secure, interactive video. Our licensed SLPs all have Master’s degrees, their ASHA CCCs, and a minimum of one (1) years of experience in a school setting.

Our online SLPs do the same job as onsite therapists: they administer assessments and write evaluations, prepare IEPs and goals, serve as case managers, attend IEP meetings, track and report on student progress, schedule students, and communicate with parents and staff. The length, content, and frequency of online therapy sessions are individualized in accordance with each student’s IEP or 504 plan, and are delivered one-on-one, in small group, and in full classroom settings.

What is Online Speech Therapy?

Online speech therapy can enable you to:

  • Improve outcomes: Online therapy has been shown to be effective
  • Expand clinical capacity: Access to nearly 800 licensed, credentialed clinicians
  • Improve staff schedules and efficiency: Schedule times that work for everyone
  • Save time: Stop recruiting, training, and managing contract SLPs
  • Gain insight: Monitor student progress on IEP or 504 goals

What do school leaders say?

During the time we have had this model in place, we have found that many of our students are highly receptive to online therapy. This model allows us to serve each child’s individual need, which is the paramount purpose of the IEP. Additionally, we have had quick turn-around time with assessments and testing.
