Orange County Public Schools Chooses Caselite Software's Therapy-Scheduling Program for Pilot With Speech-Language Pathologists

Orange County Public Schools Chooses Caselite Software's Therapy-Scheduling Program for Pilot With Speech-Language Pathologists

ORLANDO, Fla. and CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Caselite Software specializes in online therapy scheduling for Speech-Language Pathologists working in the schools; Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) in Florida is the first major metro-district to pilot the program.

"We are the 14th largest district in the country," Beth Rivera, Senior Administrator for Special Instructional Services at OCPS, said. "We are excited to be piloting this program and hope to increase efficiency, communication, and time, among our Speech-Language Pathology staff."

In a time when caseloads continue to grow and there are increasing federal/state/local guidelines for pull-out and inclusive speech-language therapy, Caselite Software provides an affordable and efficient way to schedule therapy services and tailor their schedules to the individual needs of the students.

In addition, the software allows district supervisors to view the schedules of the Speech-Language Pathologists through a web-based program, and eliminates pen-and-paper scheduling.

"Anywhere we can learn to reduce paperwork," Rivera explained, "we are willing to move ahead with the idea. We hope to be able to save hours and hours of time for our Speech-Language Pathologists and become more effective at scheduling."

Caselite Software allows Speech-Language Pathologists to schedule both individual and group therapy sessions in mere seconds. It groups students based on their therapy needs, grade, and availability.

An array of scheduling tools are offered that include: consideration of requested therapy times; schedule views from student, teacher or administration perspective; rotational/block schedules; flexibility to adapt for student turnover and administrative changes; information confidentiality; ability to meet district policies and government regulations by scheduling students at appropriate times and fulfilling frequency of service requirements.

Caselite Software was born out of necessity. The company, headquartered in Charlotte, NC, was founded by Marc T. Calello, a software engineer, and his wife, Monica Calello, M.S., CCC-SLP, to solve her scheduling needs while working in the local schools. The endless hours of scheduling, paperwork, and therapy planning, prompted the Calellos to fill a much-needed niche in the market.

The program is subscription based and a free online tour and demonstration of services, including auto scheduling, is offered. For more information, visit: http://www.caselitesoftware.com/
