Our Experts Say...
“I’ve been meeting Stephen, a kindergarten student in Ohio, online for one-on-one therapy for several months now. His mother watches each session and observes the specific techniques I use to help her son communicate. At the end of each session, I review those techniques, answer questions, and follow-up with a Web Mail® message to his mom describing how to apply the techniques during their daily activities. Thanks to our one-on-one sessions and his mother’s efforts, Stephen is making tangible progress.”

caused by distance, unavailability of specialists and/or subspecialists,
and impaired mobility. Telepractice offers the potential to extend
clinical services to remote, rural, and underserved populations, and to
culturally and linguistically diverse populations. The American
