The rising popularity of seeking speech therapy online has demanded that speech therapists learn how to translate their in-person routines and techniques into their new virtual practices. As a result, many therapists have sought out teletherapy training to improve their operations and their online services. Talk therapy can be more easily carried out over the phone or a video call, but speech therapists face the unique challenge of adapting existing physical in-person exercises to their virtual workspace.
