What Is Telepractice or teletherapy?

Telepractice connects you to a speech-language pathologist (SLP) in another location. Your services are similar to those you would receive being in the same room with your provider. You see and talk to each other.


How Does Telepractice Work?

If you have a good Internet connection and a device with a speaker and camera, you or your family member could receive services in many locations. For rural Nevadans this provides communities with therapy services that otherwise might not be available.  


Is Telepractice as Effective as In-Person Services?

Telepractice has been used to evaluate and treat people of all ages. Researchers have found few differences between telepractice and in-person services. Most clients who receive telepractice say they are very satisfied. But telepractice may not be for everyone. You should discuss your needs with your SLP to determine whether you or a family member could benefit from telepractice.


Is Telepractice Approved?

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) supports telepractice because it gives people more ways to get speech-language pathology services. Our telespeech services comply with national, state, institutional, and professional regulations and policies.
