BALTIMORE, December 6, 2017 (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.
They formed an extensive team of highly qualified speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, and mental health clinicians who provide children across the United States with online therapy services via secure, two-way video conferencing. Global Teletherapy has taken the country by storm and is now serving students in 27 states.
Alan Goode, the CEO of Global Teletherapy, explained, "This is a big milestone. We are delighted to be helping so many students throughout the United States gain access to the speech therapy, occupational therapy, and counseling services they need to succeed in today's world."This is a big milestone. We are delighted to be helping so many students throughout the United States gain access to the speech therapy, occupational therapy, and counseling services they need to succeed in today's world.
Over the past few years, Global Teletherapy has played a pivotal role in helping children who otherwise would have no access to SLPs, OTs, or counselors get the therapy they need. They match up schools that lack in-house clinicians with therapists willing to work online, which ensures that every child – regardless of where he or she lives – has access to a top-notch therapist.
Teletherapy allows for students and therapists to meet for their session in the most convenient way possible and at a time that works best for both parties. Aside from the ease of access, teletherapy 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."
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 growing even further in order to continue helping as many schools as possible never again suffer from a therapist staffing shortage.
