E-Therapy teletherapy services focus on equity and access

No matter what state your school is in, we have credentialed teletherapists that provide online therapy services.E-Therapy does not require a minimum caseload, unlike some competitors. Even if you have only one student requiring services, E-Therapy will help you.In addition to our own teletherapists, your school SPED teams can access our HIPAA/FERPA compliant eSMART teletherapy platform to serve students with special needs remotely. eSMART is designed to be used when you need it, for example, if students learn remotely from home, or if your staff needs to work virtually.

“E-Therapy has provided services for the past 10 years. We have been extremely pleased with their ability to provide timely services, be responsive to our financial reporting, and their consistency and high quality teletherapy. They are very cost effective for our districts, which struggle to recruit and retain teachers.”   ~ Arizona School Partner

Maintain federal compliance

Federal guidelines mandate that students with disabilities receive the services they need according to their IEP. Even before the pandemic, schools struggled to find and keep qualified therapists, so there are not enough therapists to fill the need. E-Therapy can fill the gap in services so that your school can maintain compliance.

Make up compensatory time

During the past school year, “learning loss” occured with many special education students. Schools, under pressure from parents are seeking solutions to make up that time. Teletherapy services is an effective teaching and learning tool, and schools are increasdingly spending allocated funds for Direct Services.But does it work?Although we have known for more than a decade that students respond well to teletherapy, it was during school closures that many administrators and teachers discovered the effectiveness of online therapy for the first time. Students respond positively to technology and are immediately engaged with interactive lessons. E-Therapy’s dynamic therapists and online platform keeps students motivated and engaged while they make progress toward their therapy goals.

“I feel like he’s made more progress in this last month than he had in the last 2 years! I don’t know if it’s the shorter, more frequent sessions, the fact that it’s at home, or if he just connects with you as a therapist better than the others, or a combination of all, but whatever you/we are doing is working!” ~ Happy E-Therapy Parent, June 2020
