COVID-19 Information

We offer the following speech therapy options to best suit you and your family's needs.

Teletherapy

Receive speech therapy from the comfort of your own home. Teletherapy is an ongoing option at Speech-N-Motion. We evaluate if it is appropriate for your child on a case-by-case basis.

In-Person Sessions

Due to the state's lifted COVID-19 restrictions, we have returned to offering in-person sessions, with continued safety protocols.

During a free 30 minute screening, we will determine which option is best and develop a customized therapy plan for your child.

About Speech Teletherapy

 

Teletherapy is simply delivering Speech-Language Pathology services through telecommunication technology. Most clients are able to benefit as much, or more, than in-person therapy and there is excellent research on the techniques that work best. We have had success with articulation (speech), voice, fluency, language, feeding, parent coaching and multi-modal communication sessions and are able to help decide if it is a good fit for your child and family.

Through teletherapy we are able to maintain the skills your child has learned during in-person sessions and continue working on goals. We are also able to do evaluations for new clients using a variety of virtual tools- just ask!

Technology Requirements:

  • Computer, tablet, or phone with camera and microphone

  • Reliable internet connection

  • Internet browser

We understand teletherapy may be new to you and your family. We are here to help with any difficulties!

4. Stay Home if You or Your Child are Feeling Sick

We are asking our families to please be extremely conscientious about canceling therapy for the following reasons:

  • When your child is not feeling well

  • ​If you feel you have come in contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19

  • International travel (2 weeks cancellation)

  • If you feel you have engaged in any activities that put you at particularly high risk of contracting COVID-19.

 
Telehealth sessions can always be a last minute option if you are unsure about your child's wellness/exposure but still want to engage with your therapist. We ask that you let us know immediately if your child or any member of your family is showing any signs of illness, particularly fever, nausea, cough, or shortness of breath.
