Teletherapy / Telepractice

What is Teletherapy / Telepractice?

Here at Therapies of the Rockies, we’ve implemented telepractice as part of our treatment options. This new speech technology allows us to connect with patients all across the country and assist those who are incapable of coming to us. Telepractice uses computers to connect children, families, and teachers to speech therapy specialists from a distance. Using only a standard web camera and video software, our therapists can provide you with amazing speech therapy from the comfort of your home or school. The future is now, so why wait any longer than you have to? Give us a call today to learn more about this innovative and effective means of speech therapy.

A Combination Approach

Not every patient is a good candidate for teletherapy, but we are happy use it whenever it is appropriate, in combination with standardized treatments at one of our facilities. A person’s education level, age, gender, and other characteristics may influence the appropriateness of audiology and speech-language services provided through telepractice, and we take these factors into account prior to recommending it in a treatment plan. Many people find this type of approach is very appealing, as it involves less travel time but still delivers positive results.

Speech Technology

So, what is needed for those who are interested in participating in teletherapy as part of their treatment plan? It’s actually pretty simple. This speech technology format requires access to a computer, a webcam, and a headset or phone to connect with one of our certified speech therapists. That’s all! It’s an inexpensive setup, and many people already have the items needed to connect for a session. Please contact us to make an appointment to see if teletherapy may be an approach that would work for you or your child.
