New Reality: Serving Special Needs Students Virtually in Virginia

Ellen Biller

We were apprehensive at first, but we did a lot of the training and the Presence team was great about making sure we had the right equipment. Our skepticism for using an online platform to serve students quickly turned into appreciation.

Page County Public Schools faced a growing need among students for psychoeducational services. The district only had three school psychologists on staff, which amounted to one school psychologist per one thousand students. They also needed to provide their school-based team with professional learning in delivering services in a virtual environment, especially in speech and occupational therapy.


Kanga by Presence helped the district’s school-based team effectively deliver services through teletherapy. In addition, a school psychologist in the Presence network helped round out their school team—using the Kanga platform to administer a significant portion of their psychoeducational assessments remotely.


Now, the Page County Public School system is identifying needs efficiently and keeping up with the increased volume. Looking ahead, the district now knows they can lean on Presence for direct therapy to support students, in addition to ongoing assessment support.
