What is Teletherapy?
Delivering Speech and Language Therapy remotely or virtually is referred to as teletherapy, a type of telehealth. When face-to-face contact is difficult, teletherapy is the next best thing.
I can help in a variety of ways, depending on what suits you. We can start with a simple phonecall and email to set things up.
I support clients and carers with assessment, advice and therapy. I use a system which allows you to:
- see me in real time over a video call (such as Zoom on your PC)
- next to a live feed of resources (e.g. using an iPad for practice and communication)
This system works like showing resources to a client in the clinic. If you are new to teletherapy it takes a little while to adjust. For example, eye contact is less natural in a video call.
Using video calls I can help clients setting up Apps at home for practice. I can also demonstrate and support clients with exercises and practical resources for communication.
Do complete the contact form if you are interested. I will try to accommodate your needs.
I’ve captured a still of what it might look like. You can see me pointing to the words and waving at the same time.
Below I am working face-to-face in a client visit before the COVID-19 pandemic. Similar techniques can work via teletherapy.
