Convenience and Flexibility:

In our fast-paced and busy lives, convenience is important. Online speech therapy offers an unmatched level of ease and convenience. You can seamlessly arrange sessions to fit into your schedule while saving on travel time and stress. 

Personalised Attention: 

Just like traditional in-person sessions, online speech therapy is just as personalised. With online therapy, you get tailored therapy plans designed for your child and personalised attention through the power of technology.

Your Comfort Zone:

Feeling comfortable can help significantly with therapy progress, especially when it comes to working with kids. With Therapy Connect, online sessions enable you to join sessions from the comfort of your home, putting you and your child at ease.

Engaging Resources:

Are you wondering how your child will be engaged throughout the session? Our speech therapists are highly experienced with making sessions interactive, engaging and fun with the help of games and applications tailored to your child’s interests.


Thanks to its convenience, online speech therapy encourages your children to attend sessions regularly. This consistency is like the secret ingredient that leads to exceptional results in your child’s speech development.

Research Findings

Numerous research studies have explored the evidence for the effectiveness of online speech therapy. While findings are generally positive, it’s essential to acknowledge that individual results may vary based on the individual and the technology used. Here are some key research insights:

  1. A study published in the International Journal of Telerehabilitation (2018) concluded that online speech therapy interventions were as effective as traditional in-person therapy for treating speech sound disorders in children.
  2. Research published in the Journal of Telemedicine and Telecare (2020) found that online therapy yielded significant improvements in voice-related outcomes for individuals with voice disorders. The study emphasised the importance of tailored interventions to maximise online therapy’s benefits.
  3. A systematic review published in the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research (2021) examined various studies on online speech therapy and highlighted positive outcomes across different speech and language disorders. The review also emphasised the need for standardised protocols and ongoing research to refine online therapy practices.
