Face Time for Therapy

img_1895

Face Time can be an efficient, fun way to conduct speech therapy sessions for some clients. Although Face Time should not substitute for all in-person therapy sessions, it is a great way to do therapy in many cases. For example, for my clients who have moved through the establishment phase of articulation therapy in massed practice sessions, Face Time is useful for distributive practice sessions that are shorter and more frequent.  For clients with scheduling constraints, Face Time provides a way to do therapy without leaving home or office. It is important to have very good screen resolution as well as clear audio in order for Face Time to be an effective therapy tool, particularly when working on speech sound improvement. It is helpful for clients to have the screen set up in the same spot for each session to insure correct camera alignment when the session begins.
