ProvidaStaff, LLC, a leader in providing comprehensive healthcare therapy services in education and medical settings nationwide, is pleased to announce that they will soon launch a Telespeech program coming in Fall 2013. “This is a great example how advances in technology enable healthcare organizations to provide care to their patients – something we are dedicated to doing,” said Matthew Lewis, COO of ProvidaStaff.

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) has endorsed this online teletherapy and stated that it will continue to grow. Approximately 11% of audiologists and speech pathologists are currently engaged in Telepractice services and 43% of the surveyed non-users indicated they’re interested in using Telespeech services in the future. One of the biggest reasons the others conveyed uncertainty was due to a lack of knowledge about Telespeech. With an increased dispersal of information about Telespeech, interest is increasing, as well as telespeech users.

These services are becoming a more popular way to help clients with limited or no access to speech therapy. Schools systems throughout the country have turned to employing sometimes hard-to-find therapists via live, interactive computer sessions. A telepractice session consists of a real-time audio and visual connection between a client and a clinician and is very similar to an in-person diagnostic or treatment session.

Teletherapy settings are not only in schools but hospitals, community and residential health facilities, medical centers, universities, and child care centers. There are no limits to where telespeech can be implemented as long as its services meet with national, state and professional regulations and policies. Adults and children alike are now benefiting what Internet resources and technology have to offer, receiving the therapy and treatment that will aid the communication in their daily lives.
