Guest Speaker Melissa Jakubowitz

Online; link to be provided upon registration
Within in a few weeks of the beginning of the 2020 Pandemic most Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) were thrown into providing teletherapy services, sometimes with little to no training. SLPs did what they could to provide services remotely, learned how to provide teletherapy and found materials quickly. This webinar will provide information on tools and programs for effective and efficient therapy along with important aspects of tele-supervision. In addition, using parents as facilitators will be discussed in order to better services provided in the home.
As a result of this presentation, the learner will be able to:
- List three resources for effective teletherapy sessions for children and/or adults
- Describe an effective teletherapy session from the supervisor’s point of view.
- Describe best practices for using parents as facilitators.
