Baltimore, MD, January 9, 2018 (Newswire.com) - A Baltimore-based company called Global Teletherapy is reshaping the way children are getting access to speech therapy, occupational therapy, and mental health services.
Alan Goode, the CEO of Global Teletherapy, explained, "In rural America and beyond, it’s becoming increasingly harder to find well-trained therapists who can work inside schools to help children in need of speech-language therapy, occupational therapy, and mental health counseling. That’s where we come in."

Over the past several years, Global Teletherapy has played a pivotal role in helping children get the therapy they need through telepractice. Telepractice allows for students and therapists to meet for their session in the most convenient way possible – online – and at a time that works best for both parties.
Aside from the ease of access, telepractice is also extremely secure. According to Mr. Goode, "We use a highly trusted technology used by millions of users worldwide with 24/7 support to ensure the success of every therapy session."
Additionally, Global Teletherapy matches up schools lacking in-house clinicians with high- quality therapists wanting to work online. This ensures that every child, regardless of where he or she lives, has access to a top-notch therapist. In the end, everyone wins.
The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) has recognized teletherapy, or telepractice, as an appropriate method of service delivery since 2005. Based on the substantial body of peer-reviewed research supporting it as an effective way to deliver speech therapy services, ASHA stated, "Telepractice is an appropriate model of service delivery for audiologists and speech-language pathologists."
Global Teletherapy looks forward to the day when every school in need will have access to teletherapists, so that all children can receive the care and attention they deserve.
