What is Telepractice?
Telepractice is delivering speech and language therapy using technology when the service provider (speech language pathologist) is in a different location than the client. Other names for telepractice include telespeech, speech teletherapy, or telerehabilitation. Clinicians report using telepractice to address multiple speech and language disorders, including articulation disorders, dysarthria, language disorders, cognitive disorders, dysphagia, voice disorders, and orofacial myology disorders.

How does Telepractice work?
Telepractice speech and language services utilize a variety of technology. Smartphones, tablets, desktop
computers, laptop computers, and business class video conferencing tools to connect speech language
pathologists and clients. (Guerin S., Marion-Wilson, T., 2013)
We provide you with a login username and password to access our HIPAA certified webconferencing
platform for sessions. No download required. Just a computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and
microphone. Headset with microphone recommended, but not necessary.
What can I Telepractice?
Telepractice takes place in private practice, schools, medical centers, childcare centers, outpatient clinics,
and corporate settings. In many cases, a trained facilitator must be present with the client during therapy
sessions. (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2010)
What about privacy and licensure?
Clinicians providing telepractice services must adhere to the same regulations as those who are providing face-to-face services. Providers must comply with HIPPA regulations when choosing technology to use for telepractice, and take steps to ensure that the privacy of the client's protective health information remains secure. (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2010)
Each state governs its regulations of telepractice. ASHA advises that telepracticioners must be licensed in their home state and in the states in which their clients reside.
