Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Therapy Essentials Platform?

It is a proprietary tool that PresenceLearning created for our own Clinicians to use in remote therapy almost a decade ago. We are confident in the platform’s ability to deliver therapy and have made a version of it available to you. The platform includes:

  • An online therapy room that has secure video conferencing, interactive tools such as a whiteboard, word processor, fun games and therapy-based activities
  • On-demand training modules to help you get comfortable with the platform and how to use activities in therapy
  • Chat-based support to assist if you have any questions
  • Some licenses give you access to a large library of digitized academic and cognitive assessments.

Which specialties can use this Platform?

The Platform was built with input and guidance from Speech Language Pathologists, Child Psychologists and Occupational Therapists that serve students in K-12 so it is best suited for the therapy and evaluation needs of those specialties.

How does access to the platform work?

Anyone who needs access to the platform will need a license. Licenses are available annually (or on a prorated basis if we are halfway through the school year). Once you have a paid license, a login is generated based on your email address.

Is there a minimum purchase requirement?

There is no minimum purchase requirement. You can purchase one license if that meets the current needs of your school or district.

How much does this cost?

Pricing varies based on the type of license that meets your needs and the number of licenses that are purchased. Set up time for a consultation so that we can help find the right solution for your budget.

How do the assessments work on this platform?

Working with our publishing partners like Pearson, Riverside and ProEd, we have digitally enabled the testing and instructional materials. Our approach meets the strict evaluation protocol and often makes it easier to observe the student’s behaviors. Reach out to us so that we can demo the assessment tool so that you can judge the tool for yourself.
