Online Speech Therapy (Telepractice)

Through technological advancements, online speech therapy or telepractice has become increasingly popular.

It has several advantages:

  1. It can take place at your home, or anywhere as long as the internet connection is stable. With appropriate equipment (e.g. table, smart phone, personal computer) and a quiet environment, online speech therapy can be performed effectively.
  2. Risks of infection is minimised as there is no face-to-face interactions. In addition, since both parties are staying at their own places, face masks are not required. Speech therapy sessions are more efficient with both the therapist’s and client’s mouths uncovered.
  3. Travelling a long distance for speech therapy is no longer needed. Moreover, sessions can take place in evenings or at weekends to fit your busy schedule.

In short, online speech therapy is just more cost and time effective!



In 2005, American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) suggested that “Telepractice (online speech therapy) is an appropriate model of service delivery for audiologists and speech-language pathologists (SLPs)¹.  Research has shown that, compared to traditional speech therapy, telepractice can provide adults and children with a wide range of assessment and treatment methods.  At the same time, many patients, therapists, and parents overwhelmingly support this service delivery model according to different studies².  Therefore, in the UK, USA, Australia etc., telepractice has become a common and popular mode of speech therapy to individuals, child centres, schools and care homes.
