Online Speech Therapy Benefits from an Educator’s Perspective


I think one of the most difficult things as a parent is watching your child struggle and not knowing what to do. Part of Gr8speech‘s mission is to work with children with speech problems and language delays to help them effectively express themselves and boost their confidence! As an educator, it makes my heart SO happy to see a company striving to help students that I long to see succeed! I truly think Online Speech Therapy can help parents navigate how to help their child best and it can absolutely transform your child’s life!

I had never heard of anything like online speech therapy until this past year. I have a friend and co-worker that works on the side as an online speech therapist. Let me tell you, it is one of the COOLEST things I have seen! Sometimes she actually would work with students while they were at school. I had never heard of such a thing!

She loves doing it and loves the relationships she has built with each of her students. She has seen significant growth as they have worked with her.

I would have been skeptical about online therapy until I saw it in action. Now I am a firm believer of it’s benefits for everyone! Online speech therapy is a game changer for parents and can impact your child’s speech greatly.

Here’s why I love Gr8speech Online Speech Therapy:

  1. Affordability: If you are a school and need to provide services to a small case load, this is an awesome alternative and Gr8speech will provide services to your students! For parents, Gr8speech is offering a FREE first consultation and a FREE therapy session with a package! That is an amazing deal!
  2. Flexibility: The team at Gr8speech are licensed to practice in 27 states and provide therapy on three continents in multiple languages! Gr8speech is incredibly flexible and will meet you where you are at! I have personally seen students doing their online speech therapy while they were at a ball park for a siblings ball game. It’s perfect for families on the go, for schools looking to fit a session in for students, or for families with busy schedules. Students can have their therapy sessions where they feel most comfortable!
  3. Efficient: Gr8speech will find the right therapist for your child and will ensure that it is an awesome fit. They offer individualized services to work specifically with your child. I knows how important it is to get to know each of your students to be able to help them as best as you can. Often in schools even if your child is receiving services, they may be receiving them in a group and it will be less individualized. Through online speech therapy, you can rest easy knowing that each lesson given to your child will be completely aligned with their needs and each session will be one-on-one.
  4. Interactive: My guess is you are probably thinking, “Great. My kid is just going to sit in front of a laptop and be bored and not engaged.” But I can assure you that won’t happen! The speech therapists at Gr8speech will engage and interact with your child and make each session a positive learning experience!
  5. Convenient: It is incredibly easy to access and very user-friendly. All you need is a quiet area to focus, laptop, and internet connection and you are set.
  6. Positive Learning Experience: A lot of students who seek out speech therapy are very self-conscious of it. By allowing for an online platform to learn, you are creating a safe space to allow your child to learn and grow. Students learn best when they feel safe and as if it’s okay to make mistakes. By taking online therapy, one-on-one with an instructor, and in the comfortability of their own home, students will see tremendous growth!!
