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.
