TinyEYE.com-New Study on Telehealth and Stuttering

Speech Therapy Telepractice

Hi Everyone,

Speech-Language Pathologists can improve your life.  If their presence can have such a profound impact on your quality of life, what do you think their absence does?   How frustrating is it to know that there are strategies that could help you…if you could simply have regular access to therapy services?   Telepractice is a solution.

Telepractice is a medium that brings a service provider to you.  For example, you could meet via video conferencing tools or on-line on a computer.  A common question I hear is ‘does it work?’. Yes.  When the technology and the service provider are prepared for service excellence, telepractice yields life changing results.    Contact me anytime if you would like the recipe for success.

There is some very new research available that supports telepractice as an effective medium for increasing access to quality services.  Steve Hards from Telecare Aware forwarded this recent study on the efficacy of treating stuttering via telehealth.  The results were shared in COMD News: Events and Research in Speech, Language, and Hearing Disorders.

The results were as follows:

“Conclusions & Implications: The results provide evidence to support the use of the Camperdown Program delivered by telehealth as an alternate to the face-to-face treatment delivery of this programme for adults who stutter. Such a model will increase accessibility to this evidence-based treatment for adults currently isolated from treatment services.”

  2. Can you use a wireless laptop to do teletherapy?

    • Thanks for the comment Stephanie!

      You can use a wireless laptop, but in our experience, it’s not as reliable (right now at least) as a direct connection!
