How Skype SLT services work 

 

Speech & Language Therapy sessions provided using Skype are in conjunction with face-to-face SLT sessions and take the same format as face-to-face SLT sessions.  

 

Just like the face-to-face sessions activities specific to the child's communication difficulty are worked through, a summary is sent via email at the end of the session along with a personalised certificate for the child with specific feedback on their work in the session and a suggested activity to practice.  

 

However unlike the face-to-face sessions some of the activities are sent ahead via email and are available for reuse after the actual session.

 

Providing SLT sessions using Skype was the focus of my doctoral research at University College London which I completed in 2013.  

 

You can view Rebecca talking about her research and the benefits to using Skype to provide SLT at the Google Campus to an audience of 70 therapists in July 2013.
