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.” Watch
Does online therapy work? Yes - over 50 peer-reviewed studies and leading professional organizations—including ASHA and AOTA—all recognize the effectiveness of therapy delivered online. Students receiving services through PresenceLearning perform the same as—or better than—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. Watch
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 on-site clinicians, teachers, and parents.

Online therapy is appropriate for the vast majority of cases, including students with more severe or profound disabilities like apraxia, Down Syndrome, and cerebral palsy. To ensure best fit, many of our clinicians are experts 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. Watch
Online therapy is more than just videoconferencing: privacy and security of sessions and student information is paramount. PresenceLearning employs the same level of security as leading financial institutions, and is in line with privacy regulations including FERPA, and COPPA.
