Telepractice in Speech-Language Pathology
The evolution of distance technology and widespread availability of cheaper, high-quality video conferencing equipment has allowed for the growth of telepractice in the field of speech-language pathology. Increasingly, practitioners are developing telepractice programs to provide family-centered early intervention services, speech and language therapy to children in public schools, rehabilitation to adults who are recovering from stroke or traumatic brain injury, as well as mentoring to pre-service and in-service professionals to improve their knowledge and skills. This book provides practical information to speech-language pathologists that will allow them to implement a successful telepractice program. It presents the technological requirements, applications in speech-language pathology, policy and regulatory issues, and future directions and trends of telepractice.
Practitioners currently in the field as well as graduate students in speech-language pathology will find this text to be invaluable.
