Leading provider of live online special education-related services surpasses two million therapy sessions delivered and celebrates 10 years serving K-12 students
NEW YORK, August 19, 2019 – PresenceLearning, Inc., the leading provider of live online special education-related services to K-12 schools, has now delivered more than two million therapy sessions. This milestone comes as the company celebrates its 10-year anniversary during which it has partnered with hundreds of schools and districts nationwide to help them increase their impact and serve more students with special needs.
“Our school partners, like us, want to maximize the potential of students with special needs by ensuring that they receive all required support services. By working with PresenceLearning to deliver therapy sessions and support their onsite special education departments, they are able to give more students access to important services and to reduce unmet needs,” said PresenceLearning CEO Kate Eberle Walker.
PresenceLearning works collaboratively with schools and districts to increase the type and frequency of special education services so more students can get the support they need. The company helps reduce heavy caseloads, provides access to a greater variety of clinicians, reaches students in hard-to-access areas, and fills service gaps related to acute and chronic shortages of special education and related services personnel. Its network of nearly 1,000 certified clinicians includes speech language pathologists, school psychologists, behavior and mental health professionals, and occupational therapists.
The company’s clinicians use PresenceLearning’s proprietary, feature-rich therapy platform, which integrates traditional therapy materials such as assessments, class assignments, games, and more, with a unique video conferencing experience that enables them to work with students in any location. During the therapy sessions, clinicians view the student from multiple angles while working on engaging activities within the platform.
Through its online therapy solution offerings, PresenceLearning is increasing access to special education service providers and enabling schools to better utilize the national workforce of clinicians thus, in turn, decreasing the number of students going unserved. The company has shown that the online delivery of related services is practical, convenient, and highly effective.
