Online speech therapy sessions are similar to face-to-face sessions. Research has shown that teletherapy is just as effective as traditional therapy for many treatments including autism spectrum disorders, stuttering and voice therapy. ASHA (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association) accredited and licensed speech language therapists offer top-quality teletherapy sessions via high resolution, live videoconferencing using an extensive array of games and tools available online.
Children’s engagement is equal or better than face-to-face, as they are not only comfortable with computers, but love game-based activities, video interactions, and digital learning. Increased engagement means faster progress.

It took a session or 2 to get used to the process as I have no previous experience with telehealth, however it was and has been very easy to use during this time.
I, personally, don’t see an advantage of teletherapy over in person therapy for my son as he is very social “people person”. However, teletherapy is better than no therapy!
He has adapted much better than I could’ve expected or hoped. He loves Mrs. Carla and Ms. Tay, so he gets very excited when he sees their face on the computer.
