All school leaders want to help their students to succeed, yet the nationwide shortage of clinicians often compromises access to the special services students need for success. Partnering with PresenceLearning connects you with a network of hundreds of rigorously selected clinical professionals via secure, live video. As Rex Miller, Director of Special Education, Bonneville Joint School District 93, says, “It’s pretty powerful.”
Does online therapy work? Yes – Students receiving services through PresenceLearning perform similar to the national averages on functional communication measures. Why? Kids get highly engaged during their live, individualized sessions. Therapists tailor sessions to students’ goals, curriculum and interests using PresenceLearning’s online library of 45,000+ evidence-based activities. And when students are happy and achieving, parents are happy, too.
PresenceLearning’s online delivery model provides flexible access to our large network of clinical professionals at times and locations that are convenient for your school sites and your students—even before or after regular class times.
Do you know how your students are tracking toward their goals and prescripted time? Our platform puts this information at your fingertips, minimizing risk of compliance issues. Our clinicians can perform assessments and do complete case management, including writing IEPs and goals, attending IEP meetings and communicating with each student’s support team of onsite clinicians, teachers, and parents.
Online therapy is appropriate for many cases, including students with disabilities like apraxia, Down Syndrome, and cerebral palsy. To ensure best fit, many of our clinicians are experienced in particular disorders, bilingual or multi-cultural. Students benefit from sessions customized to their interests, needs, age, developmental abilities and curriculum. Group sessions can be provided for students who need social skills training or who have less individualized needs.
