Parents might shy away from speech therapy for their children because they don’t have the time or ability to drive them to and from appointments, but the good news is that there’s a way to get your child the help they need right at home. Speech teletherapy offers speech therapy virtually, making it more accessible for many children. Here’s what this form of speech therapy looks like.
Speech teletherapy, much like in-person speech therapy, is different for everyone. The specific treatment your child receives will vary depending on factors like their age, interests, motivations, and goals.
Speech therapists may incorporate the items a child already has into their room into a session, or they may use a greenscreen to make their video more interesting. There are also a variety of online games that a child can play with their speech therapist.
A benefit of virtual speech therapy is that it can be done anywhere. It’s common for children to bring laptops or tablets outside to do a session while enjoying the great outdoors. You can also keep your child’s appointments if the family is out of town.
A good speech therapist can provide excellent speech learning for your child online. If you want to enroll your child in speech teletherapy, be sure to choose a speech therapist who can meet their unique needs.
