About the course

This two day workshop will provide attendees with an immersive teletherapy experience, equipping professionals in the fields of speech-language pathology and special education with the knowledge and skills necessary to start or grow a teletherapy practice. Participants will examine the research supporting tele-intervention, investigate issues surrounding billing, licensing, and technology requirements, and have a chance to plan and implement an actual teletherapy session. Content will be presented entirely via videoconference technology -- learners can attend from anywhere around the world!


Attendees will:

  • gain proficiency in the use of distance technology to overcome barriers to service for people with communication disorders and their families, preparing them to meet the needs of the field in the 21st century.
  • use best practices in family-centered intervention to coach parents and caregivers from a wide range of cultural, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
  • learn the skills necessary to establish and implement a teletherapy program to deliver clinical and educational services to people with communication disorders.
