TN School District Shares Research of Online Speech Therapy Services with Fellow Districts

As part of a grant received for Assistive Technology, the Benton County Board of Education in Camden, Tenn., has partnered with PresenceLearning, the leader in online speech therapy services for K-12 students, in the delivery of online speech and language services.

The parameters of the grant call for Benton County to investigate new and innovative programs and then to share their findings with counties throughout Tennessee.

The online speech and language opportunity are ideal for counties that might be experiencing a lack of services due to budget cuts, a lack of certified speech-language pathologists (SLPs), maternity leaves, homebound children and any other ‘hard to reach’ place for speech delivery.
