A Convenient and Effective Solution
Whether due to COVID-19 and social distancing or a busy schedule, some families choose online speech and language therapy (telepractice/teletherapy). Teletherapy can be effective for many children. Below are some common questions and answers, and of course, feel free to reach out to us to discuss your questions or concerns.
How Does Teletherapy Work?
Services look different for each child and family and are dependent on the age of the child, their goals, and what is being targeted during the session. For many children, teletherapy looks similar to in-person sessions, but with materials shared through a screen. We will also check in at the end of each session with parents and review any new ideas taught during the session. Of course, parents are always welcome to be present throughout the entire session!
What do We Need to Do to Prepare for Our Session?
Prior to our first session, we will provide you with information for logging into the platform, troubleshooting tips, etc. Clients can access the teletherapy platform from a computer or tablet with a web-based browser. Prior to your first session, we will provide you with directions for logging on. Depending on the child’s goals and what is being addressed in the session, some children might benefit from using headphones during therapy.
