PresenceLearning Partners with the Council of Administrators of Special Education

Partnership to support CASE’s mission to impact the quality of special education by providing its members with access to Presence Learning’s industry leadership and clinical expertise through exclusive programming and events

PresenceLearning, the leading provider of live online special education related services for K-12 schools, today announced a new partnership with the Council of Administrators of Special Education (CASE). Through this partnership, PresenceLearning will support the professional development of CASE members by providing access to its clinical experts and influential partners, as well as offering exclusive webinars, presentations, and other programming throughout the year and at the upcoming 2020 CASE Virtual Fall Conference on November 5-7, 2020.

“We are thrilled to be expanding our partnership with PresenceLearning. As the leaders in delivering special education related services to students via teletherapy and tele-assessment, they are uniquely positioned to help our members navigate this especially challenging school year. We look forward to bringing more of their clinical expertise and content to our members,” said Phyllis Wolfram, CASE Executive Director.

CASE is an international professional education organization of members dedicated to shaping policies and practices which impact the quality of education. It is one of 18 divisions of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) and supports members by providing opportunities to expand professional networks, exchange knowledge, and advance careers. Through this new partnership, CASE members will have opportunities to learn from PresenceLearning’s clinical experts, as well as influential partners such as Dr. Isaiah Pickens, CEO of iOpening Enterprises, who recently developed a trauma-informed, small group therapy program, for PresenceLearning to exclusively deliver remotely, designed to help students struggling with behavioral and mental health challenges.

“We have long valued CASE’s dedication to educating and innovating with members of the special education community. Administrators nationwide are expanding their use of new methods for connecting with students, including teletherapy and online assessment. We are proud to contribute to the resources that CASE is making available to its members to ensure that they maintain their knowledge of the latest innovations in special education services,” said PresenceLearning CEO Kate Eberle Walker.

The company helps reduce heavy caseloads, provides access to a greater variety of specialized clinicians, reaches students in hard-to-access areas, and fills service gaps related to acute and chronic shortages of special education and related services personnel. In the past 11 years, PresenceLearning has conducted 2.5 million sessions.
