Presence clinicians work with students and their support team—teachers, paraprofessionals or classroom aides, interventionists, school psychologists, parents, and other caregivers—via live video conferencing using the same techniques as traditional onsite services.
Our modern therapy platform was designed specifically to deliver online therapy services. It includes integrated audio and video for high fidelity, live interactions; provides clinicians with access to a large online library of therapy activities; and features scheduling and progress monitoring tools.
To provide services online, you must be licensed in the state where you provide services (where the students/clients reside).
National certifications help Presence ensure that we partner with highly qualified clinicians to deliver the best possible services to our students. Speech-language pathologists must have their ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC), and occupational therapists must have their NBCOT Certification. For school psychologists, NCSP certification is preferred, but not required.
Depending on the state where you provide services, there may also be additional required certifications/licenses which are obtained through the state’s Department of Education.
New clinicians are taught how to use the tools in our platform through an online comprehensive orientation called Telehealth Institute. You also have the opportunity to network with other Speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, social workers, and school psychologists so you can practice online therapy techniques and become familiar with the therapy tools available through the platform. You can tap into the knowledge and experience of our active, online community of nearly 2,200+ clinicians—whenever you need it.
We encourage close collaboration between online clinicians, teachers, resources professionals, administrators, and parents. Clinicians participate in all meetings of the IEP team via phone or videoconferencing.
As the leading provider of online therapy and evaluation services in K-12 schools, we partner with thousands of schools and can offer flexible scheduling options. Presence teletherapy opportunities are typically scheduled during the traditional school day hours of 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. We have found that many clinicians in our network acquire additional licenses to work outside of their state of residence (and time zone) in order to make themselves available for additional placement opportunities.
If you are an independent contractor in our network, you are free to have another job. Many of our clinicians work part-time serving private clients while working with Presence.
