Speech Therapy in Fresno 

Introduction to Telepractice Therapy

"Telepractice" is approved by the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) and allows clients to receive therapy through video conferencing. Current research has shown telepractice outcomes mirror those of traditional face-to-face therapy sessions for patient satisfaction and progress. Services delivered through telepractice does not remove any existing responsibilities, including adherence to our Code of Ethics, Scope of Practice in Speech-Language Pathology, state and federal laws, and ASHA policy. Telepractice sessions would maintain privacy through secure, HIPPA compliant connections and would maintain and protect all client information and privacy.
