Welcome to the University of Maine’s speech therapy telepractice and technology training program in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Madelyn E. & Albert D. Conley Speech, Language and Hearing Center. We use a secure web-hosted video conferencing system to provide speech therapy services to adults and children anywhere and at any time through computers or other devices connected by high speed internet. Technology allows our clinicians to create a highly enriched, interactive environment to promote the learning of new communication skills.
Telepractice is an efficient way of providing services in a predominantly rural state, and it is an extremely cost effective way to deliver the services necessary for children and adults with communication disorders. Our training program provides the highest quality training for graduate students in Communication Sciences and Disorders in the delivery of speech therapy telepractice in compliance with the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association standards (2005; 2010), federal laws, and licensing pertaining to telemedicine.
