BALTIMORE, Md., July 31, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Global Teletherapy is a Baltimore-based therapist staffing agency that helps school districts throughout America gain access to high-quality therapists that provide speech therapy, occupational therapy, and mental health therapy to their students.
Many school districts are having a difficult time finding enough therapists in their region to provide adequate care for their students. Many suffer from a therapist staffing shortage, which leads to serious complications in the speech and language skills of their students.
However, teletherapy allows for students and therapists to conduct sessions remotely over a secure, video-conferencing platform. All that is needed is an Internet connection and webcam. Global Teletherapy serves as the link between the school district and therapists. They hire experienced and respected therapists to provide therapy services to students in the school districts that contract with them for therapy services.
Even school districts that are not suffering from a therapist staffing shortage may consider teletherapy as a viable option to help their students. After all, teletherapy is more convenient for the school, the student, and the therapist. It also can be more cost-effective.
The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) has recognized teletherapy 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."
As a new school year rapidly approaches, Global Teletherapy is excited to help even more school districts in need of speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists.
