What is teletherapy?

A speech and language therapy session that occurs through a secure video connection allowing your child to receive therapy services without the limitations of distance or situation.

How does teletherapy work?

We will meet with your child via a two-way live video. For the most part, teletherapy sessions are conducted in the same format as an in-person session. There are opportunities for hands-on activities and games that are accessed through screen sharing.  For some children it is necessary for a parent or other adult to be present to provide cueing, assistance gathering materials or to help with camera angles. 

Is teletherapy beneficial to all children?

As with most things, there is no one-size-fits-all.  Therefore, teletherapy is effective for some clients and not as much for others.  It is good to give it a try and see if it works for you.

What are the benefits of teletherapy?

Convenience: Teletherapy offers the ultimate convenience. Parents and children can receive therapy from the comfort of their own home, eliminating the need to travel. This saves parent’s time, energy and money. 


Having access to speech therapy services:  Depending on your geographic location, it may be hard to find a speech therapist.  It may be difficult to find a therapist that matches with your child’s availability. Or you may be looking for a speech therapist with a specific skill set that is not available in your area. Teletherapy solves all of these problems, and provides access to services that may not be available otherwise.


Motivating Technology: Children are naturally drawn to technology and teletherapy is no exception. The interactive platform and games provided by the therapist keep children motivated and engaged throughout the session.


Teletherapy is a convenient and effective method of service delivery for so many children. With the ease of accessibility, specialized treatment approaches and children’s love of technology, it’s easy to see why teletherapy has become so popular. At Growing Together, we believe that teletherapy offers an exciting option to parents who want to help their children gain the tools they need to succeed.
