The right therapist at the right time with the right therapy.
Some of our clients receive therapy with more than one therapist!
This team approach allows us to offer talents and skills from different therapists to match with individual learning interests and diagnosis. It provides learning opportunities in multiple contexts, a key to accelerated learning.
Bottom line? Individuals working with a telepractice team approach demonstrate more rapid gains in therapy: they practice skills with different teachers in different settings at different times in a day.
We have been tracking our speech telepractice results with the results of our traditional therapy sessions using national standards.
We have been happy to learn our telepractice results match and sometimes exceed those traditional services!
We will be reporting these results in an upcoming book on telepractice (Springer, 2012).
