8:30-10:00 – LIVE VIRTUAL EVENT
SPEAKER: Dr. Amanda Blackwell, SLPD, CCC-SLP
In these unprecedented times, speech-language pathologists are looking for ways to continue providing essential, high-quality services while access to in-person services is limited. Teletherapy is an evidence-based service delivery model that allows clients and therapists to interact in a fun and engaging way, while targeting specific speech and language goals. This presentation will provide SLPs with essential tips and strategies that will leave them feeling confident and prepared to begin serving students and families through telepractice. Opportunities to interact/participate with the teletherapy activities and ask questions live will be provided.
Participants will be able to:
- Discuss teletherapy workspace design considerations
- Explain the ways in which one can use Zoom and Google Meet as teletherapy platforms
- Discuss different ways to engage clients in teletherapy using various digital materials (including Boom cards, Social Thinking, News2You, and everydayspeceh.com, among others)
- 90-minute interactive workshop via Zoom for SLPs that includes technology use, material ideas, and parent coaching using the teletherapy platform
