Creating Greater Equity and Access Through Teletherapy

Celebrating the leaders and experts that are powering education into the future, host  JW Marshall sets out to ask the “right questions” in EdTech to understand the changes in policy and technology that will power our universities, tradeschools, and companies – and drive growth in upskilling certifications.

 

Much has been made about the shift to primarily remote or hybrid forms of learning’s impact on student outcomes, and those impacts don’t stop at the doors of special education classrooms. Special education needs the tools to thrive in remote and distance settings – fortunately, they’re being made more available than ever.

On this episode of the Voices of eLearning with host JW Marshall, PresenceLearning CEO Kate Eberle Walker outlined how the company has developed new teletherapy and teleassessment programs for school-based clinicians, empowering schools to more quickly train staff and ensure they can effectively deliver remote services that build real relationships and connections with students.

These tools can help districts address the needs of special education students and other behavioral and mental health challenges, bringing a range of benefits.

Parents can more easily monitor their children’s therapy and progress, helping them support and contribute to that progress, and therapists are empowered to form closer relationships with the entire family and to gain better insight into the student’s environment.

The future of education has likely been changed forever in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, but bringing educators the right tools and platforms to best adapt to remote, hybrid and new in-person environments can help districts keep pace and serve students to the best of their ability.
