Though teletherapy is a relatively new development in the fields of speech-language pathology and auditory verbal therapy, studies have shown it to be just as effective as in-person treatment. It even has many advantages over conventional therapy.
Here is a sampling of some of the evidence:
Using Telepractice to Improve Outcomes for Children and Adults with Hearing Loss
Current Knowledge and Best Practices for Telepractice
A Pilot Study of Telepractice Delivery for Teaching Listening and Spoken Language to Children with Hearing Loss
One of the hallmarks of my work is “Evidence Based Practice” (EBP): providing treatment to my clients based on the latest research in the field. I devote significant time and energy to furthering my professional education by keeping up to date with research and attending conventions and events to continue my growth in the field. I believe that clients need and deserve a therapist who provides them with 21st century treatment based on science, not opinion, to help them achieve their goals. I would not provide teletherapy to my clients unless I felt that it was supported by evidence. I am committed to giving you my best!
