Teletherapy is here to stay. As requirements to stay home relax, we will still need the benefits of teletherapy for those with complex communication needs.

The flexibility of teletherapy has exposed unexpected advantages such as: 

  • Children are getting better faster 
  • Access to specialized services and populations is enhanced 
  • Shorter and more frequent sessions produce lasting outcomes 
  • And Many More! 

Join me as I walk you through the incredible benefits of teletherapy and the joy of helping children and their families discover their voice in this world. We are once again reminded to expect ability and assume capability of those we treat.

Bilingual considerations, behavioural strategies, medical observations, and feeding resources will be discussed in contextual examples, and materials made available.
