Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best time to start therapy with Better Speech?
How does therapy for adults differ than that for children?
Our Better Speech therapists individualize treatment for every client so they get the right treatment for their needs - any age and any issue.
How does Better Speech therapy compare to traditional in-clinic speech therapy?
According to Psychology Today research, online therapy is similar in quality of care, and also has additional benefits, like these:
- It is better for many clients as scheduling is easier & sessions are available at more convenient times (also evenings & weekends) times that clinics are closed.
- You may make faster progress when learning in your home environment, and parents or caregivers may be involved in treatment and skills are more quickly generalizable.
- Seniors or those with physical disabilities, who may have a difficult time getting to sessions, benefit from having access to speech therapy at home.
Better Speech therapy provides an effective, convenient and more affordable speech therapy option, which is suitable for the majority of people needing speech therapy.
