How Teletherapy Touches Lives: Miranda and SLP Marvey

Miranda is a spunky little girl who loves to play and dance and, most of all, loves social interactions. In recent weeks, Miranda’s daily routine changed dramatically, and she was really missing her school friends and her therapy sessions. Then we began teletherapy sessions for Miranda.

The first speech therapy session via teletherapy was the happiest day for both Miranda and me. Miranda’s face lit up as soon as we connected, and she greeted me with a smile from ear to ear! She happily said, “Hi Ma-vey” (the “r” sound is challenging for her).

Teletherapy has allowed Miranda to continue to work on her language, articulation, and active oral motor skills, all with the help of her mom – who, may I add, is amazing to work with too! During our sessions, screen-to-screen high fives are given for a job well done, and at the end, “air-hugs” are exchanged. Soon, Miranda will be having a birthday, and thanks to teletherapy, we will still have the opportunity to celebrate it together!
