Online Speech Therapy Services is cost effective. This saves the clinician’s travel time, thereby reducing the both the parent’s and school’s expense that would be incurred through higher fees from either the therapist or staffing agency. This alone allows us to undercut a general staffing company.
Sessions can be held in the comfort of one’s own home or school eliminating the need to ever travel to another session. The medium of the internet allows for maximum flexibility in scheduling as well.
Online therapy is not bound by geography and time, so the pool of qualified therapists increases exponentially. We can hire good therapists that would otherwise be unable to access your location i.e. far away, would rather work from home etc.
Since the attrition rate of therapists is often a function of distance and travel time, eliminating the therapists travel will result in a marked rise in that therapist’s consistency, and consequently enhance the students’ success.
Because the therapy is done through the computer, it is highly motivating and stimulating for children. As technology advances and children are exposed to, and become increasingly more adept with computers at a young age, the familiar experience of being motivated by the computer; the monitor, games, and images will provide a natural bridge into Telepractice. What’s more, the technology will provide the capacity to record sessions for future reference, allowing the parents or members of the child’s “team” to remotely log in and observe the session in real time. Telepractice also allows for an array of engaging and motivating materials to stored on the platform, to create a virtual backpack for homework, of which will enhance the student’s experience, facilitate greater involvement by the interested parties, and increase the likelihood of success.
