PresenceLearning’s network of more than 1,500 licensed clinicians to be provided with digital access to Positive Action’s award-winning SEL curriculum materials via the PresenceLearning therapy platform
Positive Action, Inc. (“PAI”), the leading education and technology company for evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL) programs, has entered a distribution partnership with PresenceLearning, Inc., the leading provider of live online therapy tools and special education related services for K-12 schools.
“PresenceLearning’s technology platform is breaking down barriers for students to access quality special education services from a live clinician,” said Alex Allred, CEO of PAI. “We are delighted to pair our SEL curriculum content with PresenceLearning’s platform in support of the mutual objective of delivering the most effective SEL learning experience to students.”
Via PresenceLearning’s platform, students log in from school or home to live teletherapy sessions with licensed clinicians. Special education related services delivered include speech language therapy, occupational therapy, behavioral and mental health therapy, and assessments. Clinicians within PresenceLearning’s network will be able to access complete digital curriculum materials from Positive Action’s SEL programs, including comprehensive education materials (most with approximately 140 lessons), student activity sheets, thumbnail graphics for posters, and other visual aids. Proven effective in multiple randomized controlled trials, the Positive Action SEL program is designed for use in all tiers of instruction and includes specialized materials designed for drug education, anti-bullying, family, and counselor objectives.
“The addition of Positive Action to our digital content library meaningfully expands the SEL resources available to our clinicians and school partners. Our platform facilitates a personalized therapy experience for each child, and in today’s environment, incorporating SEL into therapy is vital to helping students reach their potential,” said Kate Eberle Walker, CEO, PresenceLearning.
