Does online speech therapy work for toddlers?preschoolers?school-age kids?
Yes! We serve children as young as 18 months through online speech therapy. For younger children, intervention is heavily guided through caregiver coaching within daily routines and a structured environment. This allows the child to receive therapy throughout their day.
For older children, the child engages directly with the therapist via fun learning activities.
For all ages, caregivers are provided with carryover activities to reinforce the day’s treatment.
Online speech therapy, also known as teletherapy or virtual therapy, is the same intervention a child receives in-person though it is through the use of technology. We work with your child, family included, while connected via a secured synchronous platform, addressing functional goals to improve communication outcomes.
Online speech therapy is offered to families throughout Georgia.
As with in-person therapy, we complete the same steps in determining appropriateness, starting with an evaluation. Based on the results, we determine if your child is appropriate for teletherapy, and the goals which will be addressed.
For children three years old and younger, we employ family-centered intervention strategies heavily based on functional naturalistic routines. We support families during their child’s usual activities. Each session is dynamic and individualized for functional outcomes.
