You're a great SLP, but you want to know what it takes to be a great telepractice SLP...

  • Are you interested in adding telepractice to your practice but don't know where to start?
  • Have you been searching online for the answers and keep feeling overwhelmed?
  • Do you feel STUCK?

There is too much information, and not enough clear direction.

I’ve created this course just for YOU!

For the SLP who wants to add telepractice to your practice but have no clue where to start.

You’re wanting to get started now, but you don’t want to spend hours searching for information.


I’m going to teach you how to identify appropriate clients, select the technology you’ll need to conduct high-quality telepractice sessions, choose a videoconference platform that fits your needs and budget, and find appropriate materials to use in your telepractice.

My goal is to help you know exactly what you need to know so you feel comfortable starting with your first telepractice client within one month (or less).

This course is designed to help you implement as you learn, with helpful handouts to use after it’s all over.

I have over 10 years of telepractice experience, and I am sharing all of my knowledge and expertise with you! When I was first getting started with telepractice, there was limited information about where to begin. Today, there is so much information that it can be overwhelming at times. That’s why I’ve developed this comprehensive online course so you do not have to spend hours searching for answers like I did.

This course will transform telepractice beginners by providing you with the essential knowledge and skills you need to become a confident telepractitioner in four weeks or less. This course is perfect for you if you want to serve more people in more places and expand the opportunities for your practice as an SLP.

Learning outcomes include:

  1. Identify which clients are appropriate for telepractice service delivery.
  2. List three considerations in selecting the appropriate technology.
  3. List three considerations in selecting the right videoconferencing platform for your practice.
  4. Select appropriate materials to use with your clients.

As a bonus, you will also schedule a free LIVE practice session with me to practice your newly acquired skills.

Maybe all of this sounds great, but you haven't even started your practice yet. I also have an MBA and can help you with the business side of your practice. I went back to school so you don’t have to! If you need help with things like writing a business plan, developing a marketing strategy (including SEO and social media), or establishing an accounting system, upgrade to an individual consulting plan for additional support in these areas and more.
