Using Teletherapy To Improve Difficulties With Speech

July 23 17:42 2021

There are a number of different reasons why adults and children may struggle with speech difficulties during their life.

For children, autism and other learning disabilities, or physical issues, can often result in the need for a speech therapist in order to help those children and young people to communicate effectively with the outside world.

For adults, injuries and illnesses such as a stroke or concussion can significantly impact the ability of an individual to speak and communicate effectively around them.

Although traditional face-to-face models of speech therapy remain common, one Toronto-based speech therapy clinic, Therapy Spot, are highlighting the benefits and advantages of teletherapy as an option, particularly as the world continues to adapt to the presence of COVID-19.

“Whereas face-face methods of therapy provide the best for most of our clients,” a spokesman stated, “we have found in recent years that our innovative teletherapy services have opened so many doors for improving the outcomes of our clients”.

“Teletherapy is an evidence-based practice that can benefit all clients, particularly those living in rural communities or who are far from the city or our offices”.

“Our speech therapists and our Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) provide all of our services, and a wide variety of group and 1:1 services are available. Many of our clients find technological support options are reducing the anxiety sometimes present when clients attend our sessions in person”.

“Teletherapy sessions”, the spokesperson continued, “can really help children cope with the rigours of online school and learning, helping them to adjust to the different social dynamics that online learning brings, as well as providing them regular structure in their daily lives and extra help with reading and writing”.

“The wonders of technology and modern software mean that we can make teletherapy exciting and dynamic with interactive content”.

We can also support and help adults who are struggling to connect through teleconferencing, helping them to get set up and build their confidence in online social interactions in a variety of different ways.”

“A number of clients have told us that communication via telephone or video online has helped their communications to become clearer, with fewer issues around voice difficulties or clarity. The fact that online sessions can be recorded if both parties agree mean that it can be easy to revisit particular sessions and concepts if so desired”.
