Parallel Learning, a NYC-based digital health company that provides psychoeducational services to families, educators and students dealing with learning and thinking differences, raised $2.8M in funding to date.
The funding was led by Eric Reiner and Dan Povitsky of Vine Ventures, with participation from Global Founders Capital, Great Oaks and social media influencers Josh Richards, Griffin Johnson and Noah Beck of Gen Z-focused venture capital fund Animal Capital, among others.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate its growth by expanding nationwide, increasing access to special education services for students across the country.
Led by Diana Heldfond, Founder and CEO, Parallel Learning provides cross-disciplinary support services to diagnose, teach and empower students with learning and thinking differences directly to families and to school districts on a contractual basis. The company employs licensed psychologists, learning specialists, occupational therapists and more in each state and matches students with providers based on their referral concern and desired services. The digital health company worked with prominent research institutions and testing publishers including Riverside to develop its American Psychological Association (APA)-compliant evaluation platform.
