Telehealth in Speech Pathology–Now and Beyond

Breakout 10, SPED Strand, June 15, 2020, 10:50 am - 11:15 am

Telehealth is a “new normal” for the short term. Given clinician shortages and increasing caseloads across the state and country, however, both educational and healthcare settings need to be considering teletherapy as a viable service delivery option for the long term, even after the current crisis. This session will include a sampling of tips and share-able documents/tools that will help increase speech pathologists’ and other disciplines’ comfort level with providing services in new, non-traditional ways, including recommendations for supporting “hard-to-serve” students (e.g. students with challenging behavior, pre-verbal students, early learners) and their families.
