Can HYM substitute for traditional in-person therapy? How can I be sure teletherapy is an effective form of counseling?

Research shows that teletherapy is as effective as traditional in-person therapy sessions.  Specifically, research shows that telehealth and in-person therapy had similar improvement in 5 of 6 outcome measures, and the level of improvement made with telehealth matched or exceeded progress reported for onsite speech therapy.

Our teletherapy is also highly engaging, with creative interactive sessions personalized to your child’s interest. Because teletherapy is delivered in-home, it’s more accessible and addresses challenges in the environment in which they occur. Parents work closely with therapists to build trackable goals that are carefully monitored and adjusted to address your child’s changing needs.
