Children have been extremely resilient during the pandemic, adjusting to inconsistent school sessions, adapting to remote learning, and living in a world without social interactions and extracurricular activities. Yet, there has undoubtedly been added stress for our youth, with an increase in diagnosed anxiety, eating disorders, suicide along with a corresponding increase in requests for psychotherapy. HelloHero, a virtual pediatric therapy platform, has been a lifesaver for students, their parents, and school districts at a time when our students have been most vulnerable. The platform partners with school districts to offer its platform that connects students with licensed therapists that build tailored programs to address and treat a student’s developmental and behavioral needs. In addition to the clinical aspect, HelloHero also handles payments, insurance, compliance, and billing, alleviating the administrative burden for the districts. Therapy services are also offered directly to families. By bringing therapy into the home has the added benefit of engaging the parents and teaching them strategies to manage their children’s behavior and treatment, which has been shown to yield better long-term outcomes. AlleyWatch caught up with HelloHero CEO and Founder Syed Mohammed to learn more about how his personal experience with behavioral therapy inspired the business, the company’s strategic plans, and recent round of funding from investors that led by Silverton Partners with participation from Correlation Ventures, Achieve Partners, and Service Provider Capital New England Fund.
