Also, ACR offers Teletherapy/Virtual Therapy services as deemed appropriate for clients on a Secure HIPAA-Compliant Platform. Teletherapy is the application of telecommunications technology to deliver professional services at a distance by linking the clinician to the client for assessment, intervention, and/or consultation. Clients interact with the therapist just as they would in person. It is engaging, convenient, and effective delivery model for providing speech/language services. According to The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), teletherapy has been recognized as an effective service delivery model since 2005.
