PresenceLearning was founded on a simple, powerful idea: putting live experts exactly where and when they are needed to serve kids with special needs. Since 2009, we have delivered over one million live, online therapy sessions, and helped thousands of students with special needs or behavior challenges to achieve their goals.
PresenceLearning is the leading provider of online speech and occupational therapy, behavioral and mental health services, and assessments for K-12 districts and families of children with special needs. PresenceLearning’s nationwide network of online professionals and telehealth providers includes hundreds of highly qualified speech language pathologists (SLPs), occupational therapists (OTs), special education teachers, and behavioral and mental health professionals.
By partnering with PresenceLearning, education and health care agencies can fill service gaps related to acute and chronic shortages of special education and clinical services personnel, reduce high caseloads for onsite personnel, reduce their backlog of assessments, improve outcomes, and improve program efficiency.
