With the COVID-19, you may find that it is impossible to reach out and get the support you need from a speech therapist. No matter if you’re looking for help for yourself or a loved one, many speech therapists have changed their business operands.
Since we are all required to maintain social distancing, you may be a bit fearful about getting a consultation in an office. However, you don’t have to. As we mentioned above, many speech therapists are also using other methods to ensure that you or your loved one get the help you need even in these difficult times.
This is the case of A 2 Z Teletherapy Speech and Tutoring of Texas that was found by Dawn Hernandez, a Speech-Language Pathologist with many years of experience.
Simply put, while the clinic is based in Texas, she provides all her services through teletherapy. This means that instead of going to her office, you get the exact same treatment over the computer.
While the new coronavirus pandemic has increased this type of practice, the A 2 Z Teletherapy Speech and Tutoring of Texas was already providing this type of service. Ultimately, Dawn believes that you shouldn’t be prevented from getting the help you need if you don’t have this type of service around you or if you have problems with transportation.
