Abstract 

This live event will cover the experiences of the speakers in adapting their practices to a telehealth model with adult populations. We will discuss the advantages and limitations of conducting adult speech motor, language, audiology, and swallowing screenings, evaluations, and treatment sessions via telehealth. A moderated Q&A will follow.

Learning Outcomes:

After completing this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the adoption of a telehealth service delivery model for adult speech, language, swallowing, cognitive, and audiology services in an academic clinic setting.
  2. Explain the advantages and benefits of providing speech, language, swallowing, cognitive, and audiology services via telehealth in adult populations.
  3. Identify the hurdles observed in providing speech, language, swallowing, cognitive, and audiology services via telehealth in adult populations and ways to address them.
