Leadership Team

CARING. IT’S IN OUR DNA.

 

The management team at TalkPath Live has as a combined 50+ years of experience in the field of special education, which means we’re keenly aware of the myriad obstacles facing superintendents and directors of special education today. It’s from these challenges that TalkPath Live was developed. Our menu of teletherapy options has been specifically designed to ease the burden of schools by providing multiple highly specialized services for students with special needs — all while saving schools valuable time and resources.
