My kids are spending too much time in front of the screen...
Why would I opt for online speech therapy? Isn't that just going to add more screen time to their day?
First, I completely agree... kids are engaging in enormous amounts of screen time... so how do we manage this? How much is too much? Do I not simplify my life with online learning because I am worried about screen time?
This days we can find anything from services to goods to information online. The internet and the ease it brings to our lives isn't going way. Managing time online is hard for children and adults alike. It's not just about time in front of the screens... it's about the type of time in front of the screen.
Online speech therapy is quality online learning time.
Teletherapy is not about sitting passively while information is poured over them. Telepractice is about being actively engaged with your speech pathologist.

They will practice their exercises and address their goals through games, drawing, singing, reading, and more.
