The American Speech-Language Hearing Association defines telepractice as “the application of telecommunications technology to the delivery of speech-language pathology and audiology professional services at a distance by linking clinician to client or clinician to clinician for assessment, intervention, and/or consultation.”
SpeechWorks provides speech-language therapy services to clients for therapy over a HIPAA-compliant platform and has been doing so since 2015.
Is telepractice right for my child?
SpeechWorks considers the age, areas of concern, and attention span of each client when determining if telepractice may be a good fit.
Telepractice offers a convenient option for speech therapy services. Parents don’t need to factor in the commute time to the office or the weather conditions. Children are digital natives and often find telepractice to be intuitive.
Does it work?
Yes, but just like in-person speech therapy, practice and carryover in the home environment are important.
