Online Speech Therapy

 

 

 

Abby Brooks uses an online platform to offer interactive online speech therapy. 

 

This technology can be used to deliver speech therapy online for adults, online speech therapy for kids and even online speech therapy for toddlers. Online speech therapy can help service adults or children in communities that have limited access to speech and language therapy. However, online speech therapy can also be used with people who prefer to work from their home.

Online speech therapy can be used to address articulation (speech sounds) concerns, language disorders, voice therapy, accent reduction and stuttering. 

Abby uses the latest HIPAA compliant web-based video conferencing software to connect with clients. The software was developed by speech therapists and intended for speech therapy and other therapies in order for speech therapists to offer speech therapy online
