PresenceLearning, Fuel Ed Partner on Distance Ed for Special Education Students
PresenceLearning and Fuel Education (FuelEd) have partnered
to deliver a live, online special education solution designed to provide schools
and districts with greater access to service providers for special education
students from kindergarten to grade 12.
PresenceLearning offers a nationwide network of speech language pathologists,
occupational therapists, mental and behavioral health professionals and special
education teachers. This partnership will let schools and districts access
PresenceLearning's services through PEAK, FuelEd's personalized learning platform.
Through PEAK, PresenceLearning teachers and therapists can work directly with
special education students using Web-based video conferencing to provide
evidence-based therapeutic activities, according to information from Fuel
Education. PresenceLearning's online special education services are fully
aligned with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regulations and can deliver
thousands of sessions per day, according to Fuel Education.
"As diagnoses continue to rise for disorders such as autism and ADHD, there
is a growing need for more highly individualized and effective services for
these students," said Clay Whitehead, co-CEO for PresenceLearning, in a prepared
statement. "By partnering with Fuel Education, PresenceLearning expands schools'
access to high quality live services for all children."
Further information about the online special education services can be found
on Fuel Education's site.
