Telepractice therapy is defined as using real-time, two-way interactive teleconferencing connections to provide therapy services. It is defined by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association as “the application of telecommunications technology to deliver professional services at a distance by linking clinician for assessment, intervention, or consultation” (ASHA, 2005).
How Does the Process Work?
Sessions are conducted one-on-one using remote video communication. Children can log on with adult assistance (parent, paraprofessional, teacher, caregiver) and complete therapy goals and activities to further their development. Professionally trained Speech Language Pathologists and Occupational Therapists provide this directly.
Not only do the children receiving functional interventions from highly trained professionals, adults (parents, paraprofessionals, teachers, caregivers) are also able to learn strategies to help children carry their skills over to all environments.
