Yes, we do! We offer 15 minute online speech screenings through our online Telepractice department. The purpose of a screening is to find out if there are areas of concern that need evaluation. If an evaluation is not found to be necessary, therapists will give parents and/or teachers suggestions to work with the child to address areas of concern. Sometimes therapists will suggest a re-screening in the future.

Students today use computers as part of their learning process, so the transition to receiving therapy on a computer is not a big adjustment. Because the therapy session is live and highly individualized, the benefits are even greater. As an added perk, sessions can be recorded and replayed for the student/parents/legal guardians providing opportunities for review, practice, feedback, and carry-over outside of the school environment.
It’s cost effective.
It’s fun, interactive, and allows kids to bond and forget about their worries.
It allows easy assessment and analysis of progress in terms of speech and other social aspects such as ease of interaction.
It’s a flexible system and can easily be incorporated into any school district.

It can be just as effective as face to face speech therapy.
