Teletherapy for Your School District

We offer flexible teletherapy solutions to meet long or short-term therapy needs, connecting school districts with dedicated SLPs, SLPAs, OTs, and school psychologists who champion children. 
Introducing the Hello There Model

Say Hello to a New Approach to School-Based Teletherapy

Our teletherapy services look different because they are different.

Since 2009, we’ve provided engaging teletherapy services for school districts across the west coast. Today, as more districts recognize the immense benefits that teletherapy offers, we at Care Options for Kids, formerly The Hello Foundation, are leading the charge for transformative virtual therapy for students.

Communication is the foundation of our approach. We work with you to understand your priorities to ensure your district’s specific needs are met, and then connect you with our skilled clinicians, including speech-language pathologists (SLPs), speech-language pathology assistants (SLPAs), occupational therapists (OTs), and school psychologists. Our dedication doesn’t end after the contract is signed — our team is there to support you every step of the way. Working together, we can empower students to surpass barriers and meet their goals.

With Teletherapy, You Open Up a World of Possibilities

Technology is transforming the way we approach education, opening up doors to innovative and groundbreaking modes of instruction. When you bring teletherapy services into your schools, you’re embracing an effective and efficient way to deliver special education services to students in need.

Whether augmenting on-site staff or providing new specialty assistance remotely, teletherapy promises more equitable, integrated student support scalable to individual school budgets and resources. Teletherapy can be particularly helpful for schools in rural or underserved areas or districts that have specialized needs, such as bilingual service or unique challenges.

As pioneers in teletherapy, we have firsthand experience with the numerous benefits it offers, which include:

  • Increased Access: Teletherapy revolutionizes speech, occupational, and psychological therapy access in special education, ensuring that students with diverse needs receive services regardless of their location. Our technology-driven approach breaks down barriers, reaching students in rural or underserved areas and providing equitable opportunities for skill development.
  • Cost-Effective: By reducing administrative costs, districts can allocate resources more effectively. This approach enhances the financial sustainability of special education programs, ensuring that essential speech and occupational therapy services remain accessible to a broader range of students.
  • Convenience & Flexibility: Teletherapy offers unparalleled convenience and flexibility tailored to the unique schedules and needs of students within a school district. We are able to seamlessly integrate therapy into students’ educational routines while fostering easier collaboration between specialists, educators, and parents.
  • Enhanced Collaboration: Teletherapy enhances collaboration within school districts, fostering seamless communication between therapists, educators, and parents and allowing us to tailor speech and occupational therapy interventions to meet the specific needs of individual students. This collaborative approach ensures a holistic and integrated support system, optimizing the district's overall effectiveness of special education programs.

How Teletherapy Works

Our teletherapy model enables our clinicians to prioritize student growth through live-streaming therapy, consultation, team meetings, and problem-solving directly with families and other specialists. Whether we’re delivering 100% teletherapy or blending virtual and in-person sessions, we ensure students get consistent, tailored support as outlined in their Individualized Education Program. Our service delivery model includes:

  • Comprehensive evaluations and assessments to identify each child's needs.
  • Collaboration on Individualized Education Programs, including writing IEPs, case management, and attending special education meetings.
  • Specially designed instruction delivered directly to students via streaming video.
  • Close collaboration with the educational team for continuity.
  • Ongoing progress monitoring and reporting.
