Maddy’s Speech Therapy Sessions Reveal the Potential of Telepractice - PresenceLearning

Here is a short, interesting video clip of a speech therapy session between a young girl named Maddy and her mother. Maddy’s mother is not a certified speech therapist herself—in fact, she received online assistance from an SLP, who guided her with instructions for conducting therapy sessions. Maddy could not receive professional face-to-face therapy because she was constantly moving between Canada and Australia. In a 1-year, 3-month long period however, Maddy’s speech disorder improved remarkably. Maddy’s story reveals the potential for SLPs to dramatically assist patients through the Internet and videoconferencing technology. If simple online guidance from an SLP improved Maddy’s speech difficulties, imagine how much online therapy sessions with SLPs could do for other young children.
