Special education company Verge Learning has acquired XceptionalED, which provides a professional development platform of online courses and conferences supporting disability-focused professionals, educators, advocates, and parents.

The combined company has a user base of more than 30,000 therapists, educators, parents, and advocates from 12 countries. Online learning for special education students and teletherapy support is expected to continue this year due to the difficulties created by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Pradeesh Thomas, founder and chief executive of Verge Learning, said: “XceptionalED has created a substantial online special education community and we are excited to offer them an all-inclusive experience including continuing education, customised teleconferencing, and an extensive library of educational and therapy-specific activities – all within one technology platform.”

Mai Ling Chan, co-founder and chief executice of XceptionalED, added: “With Verge Learning’s reach and expertise, XceptionalED presenters and students will have access to even more resources and solutions to support them during these challenging times. Our founding team is excited to join and expand on existing roles and responsibilities within Verge Learning.”
