When Clay Whitehead decided to start PresenceLearning, he realized that he could create a meaningful company that would do well by doing good. PresenceLearning connects individuals that need speech therapy, occupational therapy and mental health services, with professionals in an engaging online platform. “We are very lucky to work with a lot of kids who in certain situations wouldn’t be able to receive care otherwise” says Clay....
We see ourselves a marketplace to connect providers and patients via synchronous telehealth. We are very lucky to work with a lot of kids who in certain situations wouldn’t be able to receive care otherwise. So we are really able to step in and help them. We provide speech therapy, occupational therapy and mental health services. The trends are real that more and more therapy is being demanded. When you look at online care in fields that we’re talking about, it’s endorsed by all the relevant professional organizations as a valid means in delivering the service. You can pick the therapist that’s best for you and your situation and then you can see them any time anywhere. So we are bringing that flexibility to you. Care doesn’t just stop when kids graduate from high school, they need it in all phases of their lives. So we want to be there for them in all phases of their lives.
