About Online Speech Therapy
Want to know more about online speech therapy and how it can help? Gr8 Speech uses readily-available technology and the content-rich web environment to provide highly individualized and interactive speech language therapeutic services anywhere in the world. Our innovative telepractice model of speech therapy provides an exciting alternative to the traditional speech therapy service model.
The American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) states that: “Telepractice is the application of telecommunications technology to deliver professional services at a distance by linking clinician to client, or clinician to clinician for assessment, intervention, and/or consultation.” ASHA’s position on telepractice is that: “Telepractice is an appropriate model of service for the profession of speech and language pathology.”
Studies have shown that telepractice is an equally effective mode of speech therapy when compared with traditional, table-top speech therapy. A pilot study comparing the effectiveness of speech language therapy provided by telemedicine with conventional on-site therapy found that videoconferencing appears to be a promising method of delivering speech language therapy services to school children.
Though equally effective, the practical benefits of the online speech therapy model when compared to traditional service models cannot be understated. In today’s fast-paced world, you might find it difficult to schedule and attend speech therapy appointments. You may need to take care of children or aging parents, and you find that you are limited by time and accessibility to services.
