We provide telehealth for rural and overseas clients where there is inadequate access to speech pathology services.
Talkshop makes speech pathology possible for you wherever you live in the world. We can do online speech pathology assessment and therapy sessions via the internet for any clients anywhere. All you need is an internet connection and a device with a camera and a microphone.
What can you treat online?
We are able to assess and treat most communication disorders including speech, language, literacy, stuttering and voice disorders.
*Online therapy is not suitable for swallowing + feeding, or social skills disorders.
Who is suitable for telehealth speech pathology?
Telehealth online speech pathology is most successful with those aged 8 and above. We find this is when children are able to stay in one place without moving away from the camera. They are more able to attend, focus, interact and respond to feedback online. They can be motivated by online rewards, which are not physical in nature.
Younger children may be suitable for online therapy if a supporting parent or teacher is also present with them.
Who are we working with already?
This year alone, we have worked with a number of child and adult clients overseas in Indonesia, Cyprus, Japan and Iraq. Our flexible work hours mean we can accommodate time zone differences.
We are happy to partner with rural schools to provide screening, assessment and therapy services.
What equipment do you need for telehealth speech therapy sessions?
- A laptop or tablet device with a front-facing camera
- Stable internet connection
