How does it work?

 

First, we contract with districts in need of services. 

Once a contract is established, virtual sessions are scheduled via the student’s teacher or case manager. The district provides appropriate technology for the student to be able to log on to the virtual platform they choose (we like Google Meet). Specific student IEP goals will be addressed by connecting with one of our highly trained and certificated teachers.
