I offer online speech therapy services to a diverse range of clients, including adults with articulation disorders, language disorders, executive function challenges, and fluency disorders  (such as stuttering), and aphasia.  My approach involves collaborating with clients to establish personalized goals that align with their unique needs and aspirations.

 

I am proud to serve clients across Illinois, New York, and New Jersey through my online platform.

What are the benefits of online speech therapy/remote speech therapy?

What are the benefits of remote or online speech therapy intervention?

  • Flexibility in scheduling.  Online speech therapy can help you conveniently schedule sessions when you are available.  

  • Can be done from the comfort of your own home.  Online speech therapy is an excellent option for adults with mobility issues or who live in rural areas with limited access to speech therapists.

  • Generalizing speech goals outside of the speech office.  Often speech therapists like to talk about generalization of speech therapy goals.  You may achieve something in the therapy room, but then need to generalize this skill outside of therapy.  With online speech therapy, the opportunity to generalize skills in your own environment is easier because you will be in your own environment during the session.

  • Privacy and Comfort. Online therapy allows you to receive therapy in the privacy and comfort of your own home. This can be particularly advantageous for individuals who feel anxious about attending in-person sessions.

  • Engaging Technology. Many online therapy platforms utilize interactive tools and multimedia resources to engage you in therapy activities. These interactive elements can enhance motivation and participation, leading to more effective therapy outcomes.

Does speech online speech therapy have the same benefits of in-person speech therapy?

Whether referred to as speech telehealth, telepractice, telemedicine, telerehabilitation, or simply online speech therapy, there have been numerous articles proving its effectiveness.  ​

 

Teletherapy is recognized by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association as well as other professional associations for mental health, allied health, and medical providers as an effective means for service delivery.  Below I have summarized some of the research comparing in-person and online speech therapy.

  • This study supported the use of LSVT LOUD via teletherapy for patients with Parkinson's.  This study supported this conclusion as well.

  • This study confirm that stuttering telepractice evaluations may be comparable to in-person evaluations.

  • This study supports that in-person and online speech therapy were largely equivalent when providing therapy to individuals with stroke-induced aphasia.

  • This systematic review reviewed literature regarding adult telepractice services (screening, assessment, and treatment) from 2014-2019.  Results supported the use of telepractice.
