SIG 2 Perspectives Vol. 21, No. 3, October 2011
This issue of Perspectives focuses on the use of telepractice technology to implement therapy for neurogenic cognitive-communicative disorders. In particular, three of the articles review therapy interventions that have been delivered using this technology, including Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT), Oral Reading for Language in Aphasia (ORLA), and direct attention training (Sohlberg, Avery, Kennedy et al., 2003). The fourth article examines the training of graduate students in speech-language pathology to use telerehabilitation tools in clinical practice. Delivering therapy remotely, increases the ability of individuals with speech, language, and cognitive deficits to access intervention and supplemental practice. Training the next generation of clinicians to use this technology will make this option available to more individuals with cognitive-communicative disorders.
You will be able to:
- Describe the advantages and disadvantages of synchronous and asynchronous telepractice using web-ORLA
- Describe the affective variables that influence the initiation of home practice.
- Identify the key features and underlying principles of LSVT®LOUD, and describe the delivery of this treatment via telepractice.
- Describe the steps for training graduate students to utilize technology for telerehabilitation
