Teletherapy is the online delivery of speech, occupational, and mental health therapy services via high-resolution,
live video conferencing. Teletherapy sessions are very similar to traditional speech, occupational therapy, or mental
health sessions with one major exception. Instead of sitting in the same room, clients and therapists interact via live
During therapy sessions, the client and therapist can see, hear, and interact with one another in real time, using webcams,
headsets if desired, and a live, synchronous online learning environment.
If you’ve ever used Skype on your computer or FaceTime on your iPhone, you’ve used a similar type of technology.
The actual therapy is the same as the therapist would deliver face-to-face, only teletherapy is done with a computer!
Licensed therapists use traditional therapy techniques and activities and enhance those techniques through innovative
software and tools and have the technology literally at their fingertips to plan and deliver high-quality services.
