PEORIA, Ill., Nov. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — OSF Ventures has joined an early round of funding for Madison, Wisconsin-based DotCom Therapy, a therapist-founded company specializing in skilled, face-to-face, online therapy services. Speech language pathologist Rachel Robinson founded the company in 2015 as a solution to widespread therapy shortages for children across the country.
“We really saw value in a company that is filling the need for mandated special education services required for 14% of all public school children across the country,” said Stan Lynall, vice president for OSF Venture Investments. “In many cases, video visits supplement what the schools are able to provide through their own, school-based therapists.” Lynall added, “We are excited to partner with DotCom Therapy as they expand their service offerings to health care systems.”
DotCom Therapy provides services to more than 250 schools across the U.S. It offers mental health counseling, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and behavioral health services. OSF Ventures joins New Capital Partners in the Series A funding to grow DCT’s customer base and scale their services into health care systems such as Peoria-Illinois-based OSF HealthCare which will launch a pilot using Dotcom Therapy for children who are on the autism spectrum.
