"The part on the use of Calendly, Doodle, Hellosign, Adobesign, and Docusign was beneficial. It was a broad overview." R.R. (Aug. 2023)
"I appreciated the slides on how to make IEP meetings go smoothly with consideration of HIPAA and confidentiality concerns. It's always nice to watch a therapy session!" N.G. (Jul. 2023)
"The importance of a BAA in telepractice was confirmed in this presentation. I have worked with administrators who believed that a BAA was not necessary. I liked the availability of taking this course virtually." T.O. (Dec. 2022)
"I thought the discussion on the videoconferencing platform and obtaining electronic signatures was particularly beneficial because these are areas I have very little experience in." C.F. (Nov. 2022)
"I appreciated the presenter sharing her detailed knowledge of the process with visuals, thereby facilitating my learning about the IEP procedures." C.F. (Nov. 2022)
"I appreciated the scheduling meeting app and electronic signature references." B.D. (Jul. 2022)
"I liked the therapy session demonstration, IEP information, and team communication." B.D. (Jul. 2022)
"I liked all the content. Course was easy to understand." B.B. (Feb. 2022)
"The video of the therapy session was very beneficial to have a concrete example of the technical operations for telepractice." C.R. (Jan. 2022)
"I liked the demonstration of hello, sign, scheduling program. Therapy session example was interesting." T.A. (Jan. 2022)
"This was all very applicable to my setting and daily practice." J.B. (Dec. 2021)
"Great information on setting up therapy sessions and meetings." N.W. (Dec. 2021)
"So many facets of this course to love, particularly for someone new to teletherapy! I can't choose one. I found it ALL beneficial! Hands down-Watching an ACTUAL therapy session via teletherapy was everything! That alone sets this course apart from others! It was real-world experience that so many courses don't have any more. Many courses are all about research which may be interesting but isn't helpful when we are faced with a child sitting across from us and wondering how to manage all these moving parts. I feel more confident about doing this as a newbie than I did before I took the course." S.G. (Dec. 2021)
"This was a helpful guide on types of tele-practice and the expectations. I liked the way the speaker showed more than one option." M.O. (Dec. 2021)
"Demonstrations of different scheduling resources available as well as how to get confidential documents signed electronically." J.T. (Oct. 2021)
"The various types of service delivery that can be done via telemedicine was beneficial for my daily practice." E.A. (Sept. 2021)
"I really enjoyed her therapy video demo addressing a variety of IEP goals within one session. Having done school-based teletherapy for the last year and a half, I found her suggestions and recommendations very true and practical." J.C. (Sept. 2021)
"This course is up to date and relevant. Current research is presented, with research studies and results of less than 5 years being utilized in this course. It is vital to continue to present research studies and results to clinicians so that we can continue to use data-driven decision-making and evidence-based evaluation and therapy techniques." K.B. (Feb. 2021)
