Interactive Video Technology
Our live interactive video system allows clinicians, educators, and administrators to observe and interact with individuals and staff in classrooms, vocational settings and residences. The system allows for real-time video observations and auditory interactions, which, in turn, provide additional clinical and professional resources to staff around the clock. Development and deployment of these technological resources is but one example of our commitment to excellence in the ever-evolving service environment in which we operate.
