Equal access to exceptional services.
At CHAT, we interpret "underserved" broadly -- including anyone who lives in a community where they cannot access high quality therapy, or who doesn't have the means or ability to travel for it. Our teletherapy targets these children and schools, as well as others for whom in-person therapy may be a challenge, bringing our engaging speech-language pathologists virtually to their classrooms and family rooms. Teletherapy may be a good fit for you if:
- Your work and family schedule, location, or commuting times, makes regular, in-person therapy a hurdle
- Your middle school or high school child has plateaued in traditional therapy and could re-engage through an online platform
- Your child’s behaviors make successful in-person therapy a challenge
Through a specialized online platform, we serve individuals and groups with the full range of communication challenges, both through their schools and with their families. For our school partners, we go beyond meeting IEP minutes, evaluating, creating treatment plans, and meeting other academic goals like improving reading levels and social communication skills. We also offer our school partners teletherapy as an option for their response to intervention (RTI) programs, both during the school day and through after school programs. For our families, we work to create individualized treatment plans that work for their needs within the confines of their busy lives.

"I have been delighted with the results for my students with speech [and language] disorders. The therapists are professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate and the students have responded remarkably well to this option for therapy. It is a very easy program for schools to navigate and I am constantly amazed at the speed in which therapists are able to access and present materials for the students to work with...We have been very happy with the teletherapy option and highly recommend it to any school seeking to fill a speech and language therapy need."
