We really want to keep moving in the right, positive futuristic direction – and I think this is another asset to help us keep growing.

It will allow our case managers to serve our students more efficiently, to keep better data, and adjust their service provision and their therapy. It'll take a lot of stress off their plate around the Medicaid billing and giving them more time to focus on the things they want to do, which is serve students, versus the things they have to do, which is their compliance, their case management.

From evidence-based learning programs and instructional content to AI-powered automated measurements and targeted student feedback, this platform does it all. Amplio has integrated all the elements needed to support best practices, documentation, and compliance – all in one platform. This is impressive.

I'm reading it as sort of like an all-in-one: ‘Here's your stuff — but here's also how you can monitor the progress.’ I like the idea.

One of the things I want to make sure is that our people have adequate, research-based resources. It keeps people from looking for things and just kind of piecemealing things together. So anytime I can give my staff resources that we truly honestly believe in – that all of them can access on some level? That's huge for us.

Grant Evaluation Questions

Have questions before applying?

Join us at an upcoming informational session. In these 45-minute sessions, we’ll spend 25 minutes diving into the details of our Speech-Language Innovation Grant program – walking participants through the Amplio Platform, and discussing what to expect if their district is awarded a grant in this cycle. 

We’ll reserve 20 minutes for live Q&A, to make sure you have all the information you need to determine if this opportunity is a good fit for your district. All registrants will receive a follow-up email with a recording of the session, so we encourage you to register even if you can’t attend a live session!

Answers to commonly asked questions:

Who’s eligible to apply?

Amplio’s Speech-Language Innovation Grant is available to any U.S. school district with a minimum enrollment of 5,000 students that is not a current Amplio customer. You must also have at least five SLPs on staff with PK-3 caseloads. 

Is there a maximum number of providers and/or students who can pilot Amplio, if our district is awarded a grant?

We recommend piloting Amplio with as many SLPs across your district with Pre-K to grade 3 caseloads who are willing and eager to participate – at minimum, we require participation from five SLPs. Our current capacity limits each district pilot to a maximum of 15 provider and 500 student participants.
Based on our past experience, we’ve put together this checklist to guide district leaders in selecting SLP and student participants.

What’s the duration of the grant program?

For the current Speech-Language Innovation Grant cycle, awardees will benefit from free access to Amplio Speech & Language through July of 2024.

When will I find out if my district is being awarded a Speech-Language Innovation Grant?

We will award grants on a rolling basis to ensure we’re able to complete onboarding and implementation of the Amplio platform as quickly as possible. Once you submit an application, our team will carefully review it and communicate the results as soon as possible – all applicants will be notified no later than November 10 about the outcome of their application.

I have more questions – is there someone I can talk to?

Absolutely! Please email to ask any questions or to arrange a time to discuss your questions live.
