Telepractice in Your School: Determining What Telepractice Models and Providers Are a Good Fit for Your District

April 5, 2017

7:00 p.m.–9:00 p.m. ET

Sponsored by SIG 18 Telepractice and SIG 16 School-Based Issues

This online chat is co-sponsored by SIG 18 (Telepractice) and SIG 16 (School-Based Issues). School administrators are increasingly tasked with determining whether telepractice will meet the needs of their district and identifying providers who can offer ethical and effective teleservices. School speech-language pathologists are frequently enlisted to help inform such decisions. Stakeholders must assess a variety of areas, including the effectiveness of telepractice with different populations, credentialing and legal guidelines, technology needs and solutions, parent and staff perspectives, telepractitioner qualifications and skills, and support resources offered by the service provider. This chat will provide guidance for helping school professionals ask critical questions and become better informed consumers of telepractice. The panelists have diverse perspectives on this issue and include a telepractice clinician, a school administrator, and the administrator of a telepractice company. The following panelists will be available to answer questions:

  • Tracy Sippl, MS, CCC-SLP, Speech-Language Pathologist , and Teletherapist
  • Cheval Bryant, MCD, CCC-SLP, Senior Manager, Speech-Language Services and Section 504 Coordinator, Houston Independent School District
  • Diana Parafiniuk MS, CCC-SLP, Chief Marketing Officer, E-THERAPY

This free event is open to all ASHA members (it is not offered for CEUs).
