Speech Language and Educational Associates (SLEA), a leader in the provision of therapeutic and educational services, has been servicing the Los Angeles area since 1983. With over 250 therapists and 100% employee-owned, SLEA therapists are committed to providing clients with the best in speech, occupational, behavioral and educational therapies as well as psychoeducational testing. That commitment includes reaching out to help those most in need in our communities across the state.
With the ever-increasing need for services in schools and underserved areas across California, SLEA saw the need and partnered with a number of school districts to provide these much needed services. In order to reach some of the most remote or underserved areas, SLEA implemented telehealth services.
Now, through the use of secure, HIPAA complaint video conferencing, therapists are now able to work with clients in even the most remote areas where and when it is most appropriate and in ways not possible before. Having online capabilities also means that SLEA therapists are able to attend IEP meetings, complete assessments and collaborate with on-site school staff. Telehealth brings the entire team together even though they may be miles apart.
When looking for a HIPAA complaint video conferencing platform, SLEA knew they needed a platform that was user-friendly for clients and built to meet the needs of the therapists. SLEA chose TheraPlatform.
“TheraPlatform has enabled us to be creative and provide effective online therapy for our clients. In addition to our own resources, therapists can creatively utilize all the great teaching tools that TheraPlatform has to offer such as whiteboard, interactive games and videos,” says Rina Barak (Clinical Director) “Our therapists are able to work more efficiently thanks to tools like the note-taking feature.”
According to Rina Barak, the response to telehealth services (online therapy) has been overwhelmingly positive. “Parents and teachers have let us know how much progress their students are making. We are so grateful that we have been able to further grow, enhance the lives of our clients, and learn through teletherapy!”
“We are honored that SLEA chose TheraPlatform for their needs. It is gratifying to know that our video conferencing platform is part of bringing these needed services to clients and students across California”, said Beata Klarowska, (Co-Founder of TheraPlatform)
