If you have questions about online speech therapy, we’d like to offer you some valuable information to ease your concerns. The following are some of the most frequently asked questions we hear from parents here at SLPtele:
- How does online speech therapy work?
Think of it as a video conference between your child and one of our expert therapists. You can be right there, at home with your kid, supervising the whole interaction while your child comfortably receives guidance and treatment in their very own room.
- Does online therapy effectively keep a child’s attention?
Children love technology and are always eager to get a bit of screen time. Our therapists are also skilled at keeping children engaged throughout the entire length of the session. Our experienced and licensed therapists are well prepared to keep your child’s attention to help them develop and improve their speech skills.
- What are the benefits of online speech therapy?
There are plenty of amazing benefits that online speech therapy provides including:
- Ease of access for your child and your family
- A much more comfortable and conducive learning environment for children
- Parents can participate much more in their child’s program
- Additional resources so that children can continuing practicing even after the session is over
- Is online speech therapy as effective as in-person treatment?
Research has shown that online speech therapy is as effective as in-person treatment. In fact, some studies have shown online speech therapy to be more effective than other methods as it can better serve children who are dealing with anxiety, sensory sensitivity, or other conditions that can make in-person sessions difficult.
- Does SLPtele offer therapy in Spanish?
Yes, SLPtele is dedicated to delivering premier online speech therapy services and we want to ensure that we are able to provide all families and children with the support they need. Because of this, we have experienced and licensed bilingual therapists on our staff.
Language should not be a barrier to getting your child the care they need.
- Would delaying speech therapy affect my child?
The unfortunate reality is that failing to obtain your child the speech therapy services they need can greatly affect them as they begin to age. The more your child practices communication errors the more prevalent they will become. Research has shown that waiting to provide your child with the speech therapy they need can make it hard to break these negative patterns.
If your child has shown signs of a communication disorder, the fastest and easiest way to get them the help they need is through online speech therapy.
