NEW YORK, November 10, 2020 – For administrators, therapists, and educators seeking solutions for supporting students with special needs during in-person or remote school, teletherapy and tele-assessment can provide a practical and compelling solution. PresenceLearning, the leading provider of live online special education related services for K-12 schools, is hosting the presentation, “PresenceLearning Teletherapy Essentials: A Complete Solution Built for Teletherapy & Tele-assessment,” on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT to share information about how the company’s Teletherapy Essentials training and platform solution can support schools this year.
When the pandemic hit and schools closed in the spring of 2020, PresenceLearning was in a unique position to help a growing number of schools and districts provide and sustain remote, special education related services for their students. When combined with the company’s teletherapy and tele-assessment training, the PresenceLearning platform, designed by clinicians for clinicians, enables school-based clinicians to continue serving their students wherever they are. As the 2020-2021 school year continues in hybrid and remote models, PresenceLearning‘s complete solution for teletherapy and tele-assessment is engaging students in an interactive, positive learning environment and helping therapists deliver appropriate services online.
“When I first started delivering teletherapy using an online platform typically used in business, I felt like I was an entertainer trying to capture my students’ attention. With PresenceLearning, I’m an SLP. There is such a stark difference in what I can accomplish,” said Melissa Phillips, SLP at Lewis Cass ISD in Michigan.
During the upcoming presentation, led by PresenceLearning clinical experts Kristin Martinez, MA, CCP-SLP, clinical director of SLP & OT, and Stephanie Taylor, EdS, NCSP, clinical director of psychoeducational services, attendees will learn more about the training program for related service providers, tour PresenceLearning’s award-winning platform built for teletherapy and tele-assessment, and hear from a district leader and school clinicians. Attendees will also have an opportunity to participate in a live Q&A at the end of the presentation.
“Technology can be a powerful tool for opening up access to meaningful educational experiences, and this has never been more apparent than in the past several months,” said Kate Eberle Walker, CEO of PresenceLearning. “School teams are turning to our platform both to address immediate concerns and to reimagine how services are delivered in the digital age. This special presentation will be an opportunity for us to share the features that our customers love best for engaging students with special needs and supporting their clinicians.”
