What is Teletherapy?
Teletherapy… tele-what?! Te-le-the-ra-py. Teletherapy uses live audio and video communication so that therapy services can be provided… just about anywhere! At Exceptional Speech Therapy, we offer speech and occupational teletherapy to eligible children throughout the state of Florida.
We use a parent-friendly, HIPPA compliant (privacy protected) platform, called Zoom, to connect your child with one of our highly trained specialists. Zoom enables our therapists to share screens so children can actively interact, participate, and engage with a variety of developmentally appropriate activities.
How effective is Teletherapy?
There is extensive research that supports the efficacy of speech and occupational teletherapy. Along with research that supports teletherapy, our therapists and parents have seen extensive progress in our children that have been receiving speech and occupational teletherapy services, largely due to the rapid carryover of skills in the home setting.
What materials do I need?
To receive teletherapy services, you need an electronic device with video/audio compatibility such as a computer, tablet, or smartphone with a stable internet connection.
Teletherapy is so easy–you should see how much we target with just a spoon!
