As a nation, we are navigating turbulent times. We watched in horror the unjust killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and so many others and recognize that the pain felt across our communities is a result of a much longer history of racism in our country. We have been inspired by our colleagues, family, and friends making their voices heard for a profound need of inclusiveness in our society.
Executive Summary: Across the country, in mid-March, the Federal, state, and local governments began grasping the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Federal government began passing legislation to buffer the coming economic calamity, governors issued stay-at-home advisories and local governments shuttered public schools. The Stepping Stones Group (SSG), a provider of special education solutions to over 450 school districts in more 30 states, experienced the initial shock of its students no longer receiving services in the traditional school setting. In response, SSG developed an immediate action plan to help its school district partners continue to deliver legally mandated special education services to its students. A key part of its approach was the rapid introduction of a teletherapy solution for many therapeutic and behavioral services to ensure that students had the best opportunities to stay on track during this period of disruption. Now one month into the school closures, approximately 80% of SSG's services are now being provided through some type of virtual therapy platform.Read More
