Background

As clinician shortages and turnover continue to plague special education, teletherapy has emerged as one of the primary options to help solve these critical problems. It also has opened the door to new capabilities, efficiencies and exciting future potential. Nevertheless, many schools and districts remain skeptical and are reluctant to consider teletherapy despite it’s ability to more readily provide staffing, also and a growing body of research validating its efficacy. Beyond this skepticism, making teletherapy a viable and long-term solution DOES require a shift in thinking, commitment and adaptation.

The Webinar

“We are so excited to have these two individuals share their expertise and provide unbiased guidance to our audience. There is a fear of the unknown and we are hoping that they can shed more light on all the realities and possibilities that come with teletherapy. This can make a real difference for programs that are struggling, but afraid to try something new,” declared eLuma’s president and founder Jeremy Glauser.

The information presented in this webinar will help special education leaders better understand the what is needed to ensure greater success. It will specifically address:

  • Building a vision and process for teletherapy at your school/district (setup and logistics).
  • The Dos and Don’ts of delivering teletherapy (including HIPPA & FERPA considerations).
  • Incorporating EBP into teletherapy.
  • Establishing stakeholder buy-in and how to implement a long term teletherapy solution.
  • Financial and operational benefits to districts.
  • Videos of actual teletherapy.

This webinar is free and open to the public. Registration is available at the eLuma Webinars registration page. Registrations are limited and granted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
