Telehealth service, what's that?
'Telehealth' means Allied Health services such as speech-language therapy being delivered long distance. We offer online appointments through your computer using live video conferencing and telephone appointments year round.
The benefits of telehealth speech-language therapy
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.
Telehealth speech-language therapy 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.
