What is Telepractice?

 Do you need speech-language pathology services, but cannot find a local SLP close enough to your home?  Why not consider telepractice, sometimes called teletherapy?  With advances in technology and the Internet, telepractice is the new way to access speech-language services anywhere in the world!  All you need is a high-speed internet connection and a web camera--we provide the link for the meeting place on our secure conference connection.  Therapy sessions take place in real-time in a face-to-face interaction. 


Efficacy
 

There is a growing body of evidence that supports the effectiveness of telepractice.  The American Speech-Language Hearing Association has a number of good research articles you can access to learn about this exciting technology and how it can enable those with limited access to services.

Therapy 

Teletherapy for most children can be a great alternative to traditional therapy, but can require more involvement on the part of the parent/caregiver.  While this can be thought to be a negative aspect of this therapy type, parent/caregiver involvement can enhance therapy generalization/carryover resulting in better implementation at home and a shorter number of therapy sessions required by the SLP. 


Schools

School systems across the country have started to utilize this amazing technology to provide much-needed services to their students in rural areas while saving a great deal of money at the same time.  If your school system is interested in telepractice, please contact us by clicking the link below:
