Last updated on September 8, 2022

Are you here to learn more about our new therapy platform? If so, you’re in the right place. Feel free to email us using the link below if you have a question that has not been answered.

What are the platform’s benefits?
Here are some of the key features:

  • High quality audio and video that even works on slower internet connections
  • A simple, streamlined, easy-to-use interface
  • Designed to work equally well with 1:1 sessions and small groups
  • New types of therapeutic tools and activities
  • New online assessments
  • Works on Chromebooks

What are the technical requirements?
All students need to receive direct therapy services via Presence is a computer or iPad® with an Internet connection, an up-to-date browser, a webcam, and an audio headset. Our easy-to-use platform is entirely browser-based, and there is no software to install or maintain. Setup is minimal, and is guided by our exceptional team.

Here’s a list of technical specifications and requirements to help you get started with Presence:

Device and Web Browser Requirements

  • A PC running Microsoft Windows® 8 or later with the latest versions of Google Chrome™, Mozilla Firefox™, or Microsoft Edge™ web browser.
  • A Mac® running Apple macOS® 10.12 or later with the latest versions of Google Chrome™, Mozilla Firefox™, or Microsoft Edge™ web browser.
  • A Chromebook™ with an 11.6 inch display running the latest version of Chrome OS™ with the latest version of the Google Chrome web browser.
  • A compatible iPad (iPad Air®️ 2nd or 3rd generation, iPad 5th, 6th, or 7th generation, or all iPad Pro®️ models) running Apple iPadOS®️ 13.6 or later with the latest version of the Apple Safari®️ web browser.

We do not support Internet Explorer on Windows, Safari on macOS, or other browsers not listed above.

Where can I download one of the supported browsers?

If your device does not have a built-in webcam, we recommend an HD webcam. A headset with a microphone is not required but is highly recommended for optimal audio quality.

Access to the Presence platform on an iPad is available to students only. Providers will be conducting therapy sessions on a desktop or laptop. Assessments are not supported on iPads devices at this time, so students in need of assessment will require a computer for the assessment.

Internet Access

We recommend at least 0.5 Mbps (500 Kbps) for your upload and download speed. If you are unsure, you can run a speed test at If possible, a wired Ethernet connection is recommended to resolve location-based connectivity issues.
