Speech-Language Telepractice: What Schools Need to Know

 

There is a nationwide shortage of speech-language pathologists (SLPs),
and today’s schools are feeling the brunt of it. Research shows that
being without a speech-language pathologist for even thirty days can
wreak havoc on student gains and special-education compliance. One
solution that’s been on the upsurge in recent years is telepractice,
a form of speech-language therapy delivered through the use of
telecommunications technology.

Telepractice is defined by the American Speech-Language-Hearing
Association (ASHA) as “the provision of health services over a
telecommunications network…using high-speed interactive video
and remote computing applications to provide speech-language
and hearing services to consumers living in underserved areas.”
As such, ASHA considers telepractice a viable form of therapy—
and an excellent solution to the SLP shortage in schools.
