Does your child receive speech therapy? Has it been suspended because of the need for social distancing? Have you considered remote video-based services?
Video-based speech-language services can assist if you are facing an extended suspension of in-person speech therapy.
Video-based speech therapy is possible if you have a computer with a webcam and microphone. Headphones are a good idea but not always necessary.
We use a secure, simple telemedicine platform.
Successful video-based sessions should:
- often be brief (15-30 minutes) - This maintains the novelty and holds the child's interest.
- engaging and fun for the child - We all learn best when we are motivated.
- target individual goals - A copy of the most recent evaluation is helpful.
- provide motivating practice ideas - Carryover is important for learning.
If you are interested in short term video-based speech therapy in Pennsylvania, please schedule a free phone consultation.

One thought on “Speech Therapy during the Coronavirus”
I’m looking for some early intervention for my son, 3, who developed a stutter at age 2. I was told it may go away when I first inquired, but it has not. He currently only stutters when he is starting a word but not in the middle of words or sentences.
I look forward to hearing from you.
