Our speech-language pathologists work with individuals of all ages who experience difficulty communicating and that are deemed appropriate for assessment and intervention services via telepractice.

A large number of studies have been conducted and found that when used properly with qualified speech-language pathologists, telepractice is as effective and sometimes more effective than face to face therapy.
