PresenceLearning, the leading telehealth network of live, online special education related service providers, was recently named a winner of the 2017 Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence for its delivery of online psychoeducational assessments. The service was recognized in the New Products category for its ability to connect schools and districts with fully-credentialed, remote school psychologists to deliver live, online psychoeducational assessments.
“Psychoeducational assessments determine whether a child has a learning disability or other issue that impacts learning, explained Clay Whitehead, CEO and co-founder of PresenceLearning. “As such, they are a gateway to a child receiving the supports and services he or she needs to succeed in school. However, many school psychologists are overburdened with assessments on top of other critical responsibilities. Online psychoeducational assessments offer schools a way to make this process more efficient for everyone, and are shown to produce results equivalent to their traditional delivery.”
Now in its 35th year, the Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence honors innovative applications that break new ground, as well as those that have added significant enhancements to proven education tools. Winners, including PresenceLearning, were chosen by a panel of Tech & Learning advisors who tested hundreds of entries.
Using its award-winning live, online therapy environment, PresenceLearning’s online school psychologists conduct psychoeducational assessments evaluating cognitive ability, academic achievement, social-emotional & behavioral (S/E/B), and adaptive functioning via a secure, interactive video feed. This remote delivery helps schools complete initial, re-evaluation, and triennial evaluations in a timely manner and provide students with the services they need.
Through an exclusive agreement with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, PresenceLearning is notably the only authorized online provider of the Woodcock-Johnson® IV (WJ IV) Cognitive & Achievement assessment…
