Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Social Model of Disability?

The Social Model of Disability is a framework of approaching therapy that believes disabled individuals face challenges due to societal structuring that does not account for nor accommodate environmental, physical, attitudinal, and communicative barriers for people of all abilities. The Medical Model of Disability, on the other hand, places the emphasis on the individual and what they "can" or "cannot" do due to their disability.

What does a typical session look like?

Sessions are scheduled for 30-45 minutes and take place via a HIPAA-compliant video conferencing platform.  During your session, there will be time to review questions from your home program, learn new strategies and skills, practice in a one-on-one environment with real-time feedback and coaching, discuss your goals and progress, and go review your practice plan for the next week.

Does virtual speech/voice therapy work as well as in-person therapy?

For most people, yes! While there are some specific treatment approaches and individuals that benefit more from in-person services, many people gain just as much (if not more) benefit from virtual services than in-person. Virtual sessions allow individuals the flexibility to receive care in their own home and access experts they may not have been able to given geographic barriers.
