How can Gr8 Speech help?
Gr8 Speech Therapists specialize in re-mediating speech disorders using innovative, fun, and interactive therapeutic activities via telepractice, an online speech therapy platform with a proven track of success. Some clients work with one therapist; others require the services of a number of trained staff members. This team approach allows us to match talents and skills from different therapists with your child’s individual learning interests and diagnosis, a key to accelerated remediation.
All Gr8 Speech therapists are certified by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association and are specially trained in online speech therapy for kids and teens. Additionally, we have created our own rigorous training for our speech therapists and regularly monitor sessions for proper technique and procedures.
TeleSpeech is not weather-dependent and scheduling issues can be accommodated as appointments are based on your convenience. Relocation is not an issue since the process can be continued as long as there is internet service. In addition, the digital nature of online speech therapy adds an innovative component which is particularly appealing to children and teens, who are naturally digitally-savvy.
