Additional Book Details

Over the past decade, the evolution of distance learning technology and widespread availability of affordable, high-quality video conferencing solutions has allowed for the growth of telepractice in the field of speech-language pathology. Increasingly, practitioners are developing telepractice programs to provide family-centered early intervention services, speech and language therapy to children in public schools, and rehabilitation to adults recovering from aphasia as well as those with speech and swallowing disorders. Telepractice in Speech-Language Pathology,provides practical information to speech-language pathologists to facilitate in implementing a successful telepractice program. It presents the technological requirements, current applications in speech-language pathology, policy and regulatory issues, future directions and trends, and international perspectives on telepractice. The book also addresses the use of distance learning technology to provide supervision and mentoring to pre-service and in-service professionals. Both practitioners currently in the field and graduate students in speech-language pathology will find this to be an invaluable text.
