Can I get reliable speech therapy online? Keep reading to find out everything you need to know:
What exactly is it?
Online speech therapy – or teletherapy – is an online delivery of therapy services. It is easily accessed through a device, making it user-friendly and less intimidating for children especially.
There are many benefits that include:
- No travel time to the therapist’s office
- More flexible hours
- Being able to exercise at home
Are online sessions reliable?
Yes, online speech therapy is just as effective as real life! With over 40 million Americans suffering from communication disorders, it is an equally good alternative for people who don’t have the time to commute to the therapist’s office.
Moreover, this aims to mimic a real-life session. Since it is live video conferencing, patients can still receive real-time feedback to improve their speech disorders.
What would a session look like?
Some speech therapy exercises that work well online include:
- Straw breathing exercises
- Online quiz games to test comprehension
- Speech therapy mobile application games
