WHAT ARE VIRTUAL SERVICES?

Virtual services are education services delivered over the computer instead of on-site. Your services are similar to those you would receive being in the same room with your specialist or teacher, you can see and talk to each other and participate in activities together.


Virtual services have been used to evaluate, teach and treat people of all ages. Researchers have found few differences between virtual learning and in-person learning. Most students who receive services virtually say that they are very satisfied. 


The American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) and the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) support services provided virtually because it provides more people access to Speech and OT  services.
