What is telepractice
In short, telepractice allows for continuity of care when in-person sessions are not practical or feasible.
Whether you’re familiar with it as telepractice, telehealth, telemedicine, remote testing – the common theme is this: our customers want to know how to continue to deliver clinical, speech-language therapy, occupational therapy, behavioral health, and psychoeducational tools and assessments to students and clients at home.
Telepractice links clinician to client, or clinician to clinician for assessment, intervention, and/or consultation via telecommunications. It includes a growing variety of applications and services using two-way video, email, smart phones, wireless tools, and other forms of telecommunications technology.
