Teletherapy for our Virtual Students is Now a Necessity!

Teletherapy for our Virtual Students is Now a Necessity!

If you are like me, I did a lot of “zooming” over the 20 weeks we were out of school!  I even tried to use Facetime to work with a student I was tutoring.  It was a disaster!  While a Zoom call allows you to see others, chat and show your screen, that’s about it.  It offers nothing to the therapist who needs tools, materials, options, resources.

As a former SLP, I had heard of teletherapy, but never tried it myself.  In fact, when it first came out, I was wondering how in the heck doing speech/language therapy remotely was even possible!  It sounded like a lame attempt to provide therapy services online.

Today in this world of working from home, going to school from home, basically doing everything from home, teletherapy now seems like a lifeline to services rather than some weird fad.

Once I discovered this online platform for teletherapy, I’m a believer.  Take a look!

Presence Learning gives the therapist so much more than I ever imagined.  I can’t believe that you can evaluate students with all of your favorite assessments.  You have access to thousands of activities, and tools like annotation, split screens, reinforcers.  Presence Learning helps you take your notes for data, and has training for therapists, parents, and 6 am to 6 pm tech support that is immediate!

If you must go virtual, this is the way to go.  I wanted to share with you what we are doing because you might be in a panic mode about what to do with no good ideas of where to turn.  We would be lost right now, if we didn’t have this option.   

I hope this was helpful!  If this particular company doesn’t meet your needs, at least you may be inspired to look for other options. I didn’t want you to feel that a pandemic was going to force you to stop providing quality services for your students! 

Let me know what you think!

You take care and I’ll see you next time!
