Teletherapy

What is teletherapy (also referred to as telepractice)?

  • Speech/language services that are provided to a client using technology (e.g., a computer). A multitude of disorders can be addressed using teletherapy, including: articulation disorders, autism, dysarthria, language disorders, cognitive disorders, dysphagia, and voice disorders 

Is teletherapy as effective as traditional face-to-face therapy?

  • YES! Teletherapists MUST follow the same rules and meet the same standards that are established for face-to-face service delivery models in order to ensure that clients make progress

  •  Many clients find the use of technology very motivating and prefer it to face-to-face therapy!
