Why Online Therapy for K-12 Schools
A Integrated Solution is the right way to go because onsite and online therapists together can bring more cost efficiency, greater efficacy, and greater student outcomes. In some cases, staffing your school or district 100% with online therapists is the only or best option, and we can do that too.
Backed By A Large Body Of Research.eLuma is backed by an ever-growing body of academic research. In fact, well over 100 studies from accredited universities and research organizations have concluded that online therapy is not only effective, but also produces similar, if not highly competitive outcomes compared to onsite therapy.

Compliant To All Of The Same Requirements As Onsite Therapy.The use of telepractice does not remove any existing responsibilities in delivering services, including adherence to the various codes of ethics, scopes of practice, state and federal laws (e.g., licensure, HIPAA, etc.), as well as policy documents on professional practices. Therefore, the quality of services delivered via telepractice must be consistent with the quality of services delivered face-to-face.
Recognized As An Acceptable And Viable Form Of Treatment.In 2015, the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) clarified their policy on reimbursement for telemedicine services, clearing the way for each state to reimburse for telemedicine services that have parity with face-to-face services. So far, 28 states have approved Medicaid reimbursement for the delivery of related services online. As the efficacy of online therapy continues to bear out, this number will likely and rapidly increase.
Endorsed By Many Leading National Organizations.The US Dept of Health & Resources, the Mayo Clinic, the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA), the Stuttering Foundation, the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Hospital Association (AHA), the American Psychological Association (APA), the American Counseling Association (ACA), the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), and the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES).
Approved By A Rapidly Growing Number Of Schools And Districts.Online therapy is here to stay. Every year, more and more schools and districts from all over the country are going with online therapy services. Some are just looking to fill vacancies, but a growing number are seeking the unique advantages that enable them to expand their capabilities and improve their overall performance with eLuma.
See How It Works
More and more districts are discovering that eLuma is not only affordable, but can actually produce savings. Our pricing makes us very competitive against national averages, but in many cases, our integrated solutions provide efficiencies that can reduce therapy costs by several thousand dollars (or more).
In a recent survey of Special Education Directors at the CASE/NASDSE Convention, over 61% of those interested in using online therapy listed cost as their primary concern. With ever-tightening budgets, many administrators are understandably wary of adding more expenses to their bottom line. While it is true that some online therapy providers can be quite costly, the perception that online therapy is too expensive is mostly unfounded.
We provide a free consultation to help you identify areas where you might reduce your costs and simultaneously improve your ability to deliver a broader range of high-quality therapy services.
