Telehealth service, what's that?
'Teletherapy' (sometimes called 'telehealth') means Allied Health services such as speech-language therapy being delivered long distance. Speechie offers online appointments through your computer using live video conferencing and telephone appointments in the comfort of your own home.
The benefits of speech-language teletherapy
We understand that people tend to prefer in person speech-language therapy... and we would LOVE people and families all over New Zealand to embrace telehealth speech-language therapy. Why? Because telehealth research tells us that telehealth speech-language therapy works. And because telehealth is the surest, safest, most private, and most efficient, economical, time, energy and cost saving, environmentally friendly way for everybody to get quality speech-language therapy when they want it, wherever they are, whatever their need - and whatever is going on the world.
Speech-language teletherapy works in 2 ways
- Directly, where the Speech-Language Therapist works directly with the person who has communication difficulties.
- Indirectly, where the Speech-Language Therapist works indirectly with the person who has communication difficulties by supporting their parents, caregivers, or significant others to meet their communication needs.
