What is telepractice?
The official policy of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association is:
“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. It is the position of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) that telepractice is an appropriate model of service delivery for the profession of speech-language pathology.”
What technology do I need?
Sessions are held live through a computer or mobile device with high-speed internet connection. Clients will need a webcam (which can be built-in) and headset during your online sessions. The use of this technology enables you to interact with the clinician in a manner that mimics an in-person interaction.
