BALTIMORE, August 23, 2017 (Newswire.com) - As a brand new school year is about to begin, Global Teletherapy is ramping up for another incredible year of helping students, therapists, and school districts.
During 2016-2017, budget cuts, staffing shortages, and therapist turnover plagued schools throughout the country. Consequently, some districts went without speech-language pathologists and school psychologists while others explored a new path forward.
We're really excited for what the new year will bring. In the near future, we plan on increasing the number of school districts we'll be working with and hiring additional teletherapists. 2017-2018 is shaping up to be a great year all around.
Alan Goode, CEO of Global Teletherapy
To help students gain access to the speech therapy services they needed to succeed, these districts turned to companies like Global Teletherapy. Global Teletherapy provides secure online therapy services (also known as "teletherapy") to school districts throughout the United States. Teletherapy is the online delivery of speech, occupational, and mental health therapy services via two-way video conferencing. The sessions are essentially identical to traditional therapy sessions, except for one key difference. Instead of sitting in the same room, students and teletherapists interact via live video conferencing.
Hiring Global Teletherapy allows for these school districts to gain wider access to top-notch therapists while helping their students get the therapy they need in a convenient way. School administrators who are wondering whether teletherapy could work for their district are encouraged to contact Global Teletherapy at: https://globalteletherapy.com/contact.
The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) is the professional, scientific, and credentialing association for 135,000 members and affiliates who are audiologists and speech-language pathologists. Based on the strong body of peer-reviewed research supporting telepractice as an effective method of delivering speech therapy service, ASHA recognizes telepractice as a valid means of service delivery.
