Virtual Speech Therapy Advances Health Equity, Provides Accessible Care for All

Great Speech, a leader in virtual speech therapy, is breaking down barriers and promoting health equity for all by improving access to convenient, personalized sessions for people of all ages looking to improve their speech and communication skills. Through a secure and user-friendly virtual speech platform, sessions can be conducted from the comfort of home, work, school or anywhere with an internet connection – with the added flexibility to schedule sessions on weekends or evenings as needed.

Overcoming Socioeconomic Barriers

Great Speech excels in addressing socioeconomic barriers through its convenient, customized approach. By aggregating all information about our therapists’ background, training and experience, we ensure every patient is matched with the most qualified speech-language pathologist (SLP), which accelerates progress and may even reduce the number of sessions.

Our nationwide network of 200+ licensed speech therapists allows us to select an SLP from any part of the country — without geographical limitations. This optimizes pairing patients with the most qualified speech therapists in our network for a patient’s specific condition, while eliminating travel time and costs and extending quality care to previously underserved areas.

Thanks to the inclusion of Great Speech’s online speech therapy services in many health plans, patients find it easy to make their first appointment – either as a private pay client or enrolled in one of these plans.

Members may be eligible to use their Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) to cover any out-of-pocket deductibles and may be fully covered once the deductible is met.

This commitment to cost-effectiveness ensures that individuals with limited financial resources can still access the speech therapy they may need.

Cultural Sensitivity and Inclusivity

Recognizing the importance of cultural sensitivity in healthcare, Great Speech integrates this crucial aspect into their online speech therapy programs. Understanding that effective therapy requires cultural competency, they ensure their therapists are trained to accommodate diverse cultural backgrounds and languages, including a transgender voice affirmation therapy training program. Additionally, Great Speech offers virtual speech therapy for rehabilitation programs. Great Speech fosters an inclusive environment where patients from different cultures feel understood and supported throughout their speech therapy journey.

Empowering Individuals With Confidence and Happiness

The ability to effectively communicate is something that gets taken for granted. People might only think about their speaking proficiency if it is taken away – such as the challenges of speaking after an accident or traumatic brain injury (TBI), or the struggles associated with a condition such as Parkinson’s disease, dementia, Alzheimer’s or following a stroke.

Without a voice, people begin to feel frustrated and isolated.  Our work at Great Speech focuses on empowering people of all ages with the right tools to express themselves. Just like caring for yourself through a good diet and regular exercise, investing in how you or your child communicates is also a wonderful form of self-care. Virtual speech therapy is an investment that provides a great return: happiness.

By prioritizing accessibility, Great Speech ensures that every individual can benefit from speech therapy. Through continuous, ongoing access to care, Great Speech advances health outcomes, improves self-confidence and leads to faster results with reduced costs.

Virtual speech therapy ensures that all individuals have equal access to quality care. As we continue towards a more equitable healthcare system, it is vital to embrace innovative solutions like virtual speech therapy. By doing so, we can create a more inclusive environment where every individual has the opportunity to communicate confidently, unlocking their full potential and leading healthier, happier lives.
