Online Speech Therapy Provider Connects Students with the Future of Learning Through Official Partnership with Double Robotics

Robots in Schools

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) March 05, 2014

Austin, March 4, 2014 – TinyEYE Therapy Services is taking telepractice to a new level of educational innovation. They announced this morning their official partnership with Double Robotics, a California-based robotics company known for their telepresent robot. TinyEYE has begun using this robot in delivering their speech therapy services in Canada and the USA.

Telepractice is a term that refers to practitioners using telecommunication technologies to deliver their treatments. In speech therapy, the most common type of telepractice is using a web camera and a web-enabled software tool to connect with the student while they’re at school. Traditionally, telepractice has been one static location to another static location. “Bringing mobility into the telepractice model enables the therapist to engage in the environment of the student,” said Greg Sutton, TinyEYE Chief Executive Officer. “They can go right into the classroom, sit next to the student at their desk or stand next to the teacher. They get a better overall feeling of the environment that the student is in and this enables the therapist to better treat that student.”

The engagement that speech therapists can achieve while using the telepresent robot is the key to achieving positive outcomes for students. TinyEYE Co-Founder and Speech Therapist, Marnee Brick adds, “Through our 8 years of experience of delivering online speech therapy to thousands and of thousands of kids, we’ve learned that engagement is the secret to learning. By bringing robots to schools, we are facilitating engagement and also preparing children for the future they are going into, rather than the world that we came from.”

Media & industry are invited to learn more about TinyEYE’s innovative use of robots in the education system by joining Greg Sutton for his talk at SXSWedu or by visiting Event participants will get an opportunity to be the robot!
