PresenceLearning Honors Top Districts for Exemplary Student Progress in Second Annual Awards of Excellence

Students with special needs using online speech therapy from PresenceLearning exceeded national benchmarks for progress during 2014-2015 school year and Borrego Springs Unified School District is one of two schools receiving the honors for the second-time. Each of the award winners will receive a commemorative plaque marking the achievement.

Each day, thousands of students with special needs across 43 states log on to PresenceLearning to receive live, online speech therapy and other special education related services from a large network of fully licensed providers. With consistent access to high-quality remote SLPs, students are progressing toward or achieving their speech therapy goals on their Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). To celebrate the successes that school districts are having in meeting students’ needs.

PresenceLearning selected the winners based on two factors:

● The percentage of students at the district who improved one level or more in spoken language production and spoken language comprehension on the Functional Communication Measures (FCMs) scales during the 2014-15 school year

● Exemplary partnership between the district and PresenceLearning
