"I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say...because of you I didn't give up! To me...this is what a Speech Language Pathologist is...someone who inspires, teaches, guides, assists, supports & advocates for their clients and promotes the importance of communication"

New exciting way of providing treatment.......Telehealth. This is where therapy sessions are completed via zoom, Skype, face time etc, which cuts the travel costs for both parties. Telehealth has shown to be a very successful way of providing treatment with similar progress results in shorter session times when compared to face-to-face treatment. A great alternative to those who live in rural areas or who have busy family lives.
