Exploring the dimensions to speech and language telepractice that lead to successful outcomes for pediatric clients (≤ 16 years)
The aim of this study is to explore factors that lead to successful and unsuccessful speech pathology services for children 16 years of age and under delivered through telepractice from client and speech-language clinicians’ perspective. The questionnaire looks at 4 broad components of tele-practice namely: technology, speech therapy, client and clinician factors.
Participants in this study should be:
Fully qualified speech-language pathologists or speech-language therapists
Familiar with but having no experience with speech and language services delivered to children 16 years and under through telepractice
Speech-language pathologists having had at least one session of speech therapy with a child 16 years and under via telepractice
Fluent in English Access to the survey is via an online link therefore responses will be anonymous and therefore unidentifiable.
If you would like to receive more information about the research study and are willing for the clinicians in your centre to participate, could you kindly reply to Melissa Peter firstname.lastname@example.org or to Michelle Lincoln email@example.com.
We will then proceed to send you the Participant Information Statement, with the corresponding link to the Consent Form and online survey. The survey would take 15 minutes for those who are familiar with telepractice without experience and about 25 minutes for those with telepractice experience.
With sincere appreciation
