We welcome Moira Shaw, CF, SLP to our staff!!!
Waldo County General Hospital's speech department is the only speech therapy program in the US to be accredited to provide speech telepractice training by the American Telemedicine Association (ATA).
Telepractice uses a computer with a video connection to provide speech therapy to preschoolers, children in school and adults at home or in an office. The therapy connection is private and secure.
Providing the right therapist at the right time with the right therapy.
Using authentic and individualized materials allows us to make personal connections with each client. Working closely with parents and teachers using our coaching approach allows us to create partnerships in sharing information and strategies.
Many 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 styles. 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. We have been tracking our speech telepractice results with the results of our traditional tabletop therapy sessions using a national standardized data base. Our telepractice results match and sometimes exceed those traditional in-person services! Click here for a brochure with more information about speech telepractice.
