Requirements for Prospective Lexercise Teletherapy Partners

Our Teletherapy Partner network is growing! 

Lexercise teletherapy partners are professionals, often educational therapists or speech-language pathologists, who are experts in structured literacy (a.k.a. Orton-Gillingham) therapy. They use the Lexercise teletherapy platform so they can work with clients wherever they live.  Review our current Teletherapy Partners HERE.

We are seeking more qualified providers. 

Lexercise Teletherapy Partner candidates must demonstrate the requirements listed below under "REQUIREMENTS".  After qualifying, there are 5 steps to becoming a Lexercise Teletherapy Partner, listed below under "STEPS".

If you are interested and think you can qualify we'd love to hear from you!  

 

I.  REQUIREMENTS for Prospective Lexercise Teletherapy Partners

1. The therapist has a professional degree from an accredited university in education, psychology, speech-language pathology, medicine or a related profession. (A Master’s Degree or higher is preferred.)

 

2. The therapist has had demonstrated knowledge of the structure of written English and of the structured literacy intervention methodology, consistent with the International Dyslexia Association's Knowledge and Practice Standards by passing the Lexercise Clinician Qualification Test  either by:

  • passing the Lexercise Qualification Test or
  • taking Lexercise’s online professional development courses and passing the final exam in Course 2

 

Here is a link to a  study guide for the Clinician Qualification Test.

 

 3. The clinician has had at least 100 hours of supervised clinical practice providing intervention for language / literacy disorders in a one-to-one therapeutic setting (as opposed to in a group or classroom application). Practicum is a part of professional preparation for most helping professionals (special educators, SLPs, psychologists, medical professionals).

 

Supervised practicum of structured literacy can be arranged as an online, independent study course through Lexercise. It is also available through private training institutes like ALTA.

 

4.  The clinician operates, or is employed by, a business entity (e.g., a sole proprietorship, limited liability company, partnership, corporation or a non-profit agency).   Current Teletherapy Partners are often looking for qualified associates so, if you prefer, you might contract with a business as opposed to running your own.

 

5. The clinician agrees to be trained in, and comply with, the Lexercise teletherapy procedures, consistent with the American Telemedicine Association's Telemental Health teletherapy guidelines, and agrees to acquire and maintain the necessary hardware and software, including:

 

  • dependable, high-speed internet, adequate for video-conferencing
  • modern computer(s) with a webcam and microphone
  • a headset with a microphone
  • a quiet space with professional video backdrop (e.g. no bed or kitchen in the background)
  •  a secure physical or virtual fax machine to facilitate receiving client paperwork
  • a Google calendar (shared with Lexercise for scheduling teletherapy clients)
  • a secure, private system for organizing digital office records (e.g. a secure computer)
 

NOTE: Lexercise provides all new Teletherapy Partners with competency-based, best-practice teletherapy technology training. Therapists must complete this course before providing services.
