Are you looking for speech and language services without leaving your home? Do you live in a community with few speech and language resources? If so, our tele-therapy services are here to help support you and your child.
Tele-therapy is a commonly used term to provide speech and language therapy through the use of video chat combined with specialized software and a licensed and trained therapist. The sessions and exercises are designed based upon the child's needs, age and comfort with technology.
Sessions - What to Expect
Tele-therapy sessions take on a very similar look and feel of a 'traditional' speech therapy setting and has been proven an effective practice in use for many years. All that is required is access to a computer and a strong internet connection. It is recommended that an adult is in the same room to assist in troubleshooting any potential issues as the child and therapist develop a connection and become acquainted withe the expectations and use. Sessions will typically last between 30 - 60 mins with all of the same goals, exercises and expectations that would be found on a weekly basis with in person therapy.
