Many older Americans suffer from acute and chronic communication disorders resulting from stroke, head and neck cancer, and neurological diseases, and although speech and language therapy can often improve symptoms and mitigate the impact of communication disorders, access to qualified providers may be limited for some patients due to: poor social supports, finances, or geographical constraints. For patients with limited physical access to speech-language pathology services, Telehealth, the process of providing services by videoconferencing or web interfaces is becoming an increasingly popular avenue for ensuring patients obtain necessary care from home. Join us as we explore the current and potential benefits and barriers for treating communication disorders using the telehealth platform. Guest/s: Erica James, MA, CCC-SLP. The Voice and Swallowing Center, Waldo Hospital, Maine, the only program in the US to be accredited to provide speech telepractice training by the American Telemedicine Association (ATA). Erica is experienced in providing speech and voice therapy in person and via the computer using a secure telerehabilitation platform. David Poskanzer, MBA, is the Vice President of Sales and Customer Care for Constant Therapy and he has been instrumental in launching the Constant Therapy mobile app and providing ongoing training and guidance to patients, therapists and 3rd party payers who are invested in accelerating the recovery from stroke and traumatic brain injury.
