Telehealth Services

Telehealth is a unique tool for special education related service providers to be able to seamlessly transition therapy sessions from school to home without disruption to IEP services agreed upon by the IEP committee. This tool incorporates technologies such as videoconferencing, the internet, streaming video and other wireless communications. 

Our Telehealth Platform

Specialized is pleased to provide an online platform in order to assist schools and students with access to related services, including speech therapy, counseling, occupational therapy, physical therapy, dyslexia services, along with services for students with visual and auditory impairments. In addition, schools can remain in compliance with state and federal timelines by utilizing our telehealth platform and special education staff to hold IEP meetings, staffings, and consultations. 


Our telehealth platform utilizes the most current technology to provide secure and real-time communication between students and their related services providers. Schools, students and families can be rest assured that our online platform affords convenience and flexibility as students have access via any mobile or electronic device with a webcam (e.g., computer, iPad and other wireless electronic devices). Our staff will make best efforts to arrange scheduling that best suits your student’s needs. This tool incorporates technologies such as videoconferencing, the internet, streaming video and other wireless communications.
