Telepractice: Online Speech-Language Therapy at Home or School! Learn More! by Achieve

In some locations, access to a certified speech-language pathologist can be difficult to obtain. Telepractice is an exciting way to receive speech therapy from the comfort of your home or school. Telepractice provides clients the ability to meet privately face-to-face with clinicians through online therapy. The American Speech-Language Hearing Association states that, “Telepractice is an appropriate model of service delivery for speech-language pathologist,” provided that they abide by the code of ethics. 

Companies such as TinyEYE are able to connect certified clinicians for online therapy. The service delivery is similar to traditional therapy, but the content is delivered through highly engaging and interactive online software. The benefits of telepractice include:

  • easy access to certified clinicians
  • lack of travel time
  • motivating and engaging software

Telepractice may not be appropriate for all individuals and requires access to the Internet and a computer. Learn more about telepractice!
