6. Is online speech therapy right for me?


According to Psychology Today research, online therapy has the following benefits:

  • Higher Efficiency & Flexibility
  • Better results due to improved Timeliness and Compliance
  • Accessibility to more Qualified Therapists
  • Cost savings
Online speech therapy provides an effective, conveniently and more affordable speech therapy.




7. How's online therapy compared to historical in-person therapy?


Online speech therapy has been shown to be just-as or more effective speech therapy. It can be more approprate for you as scheduling is easier & sessions are avaiable at more convenient times (evening & weekend). This decreases missed sessions and progress is made faster. Speech therapy for seniors who might have a difficult time getting to sessions also provides access to care they wouldn't otherwise get. In addtion, people with anxiety or sensory issues are oftentimes more relaxed and focused with online instruction provided in the comfort of their own home. Online speech therapy also allows those with difficulty accessing quality services in their community to have a speech therapist available to them at home.

Online speech therapy is also great for families that don't want to wait for a speech therapist to become available. At Speech Therapy that Works we have a Parent Coaching program where parents learn to use strategies to improve their child's communication while working with a speech therapist online.
