Great Speech Approach to Virtual Speech Therapy
During our recent live presentation at the American Telemedicine Association Innovation Awards event – where we captured First Place in the In-patient Care Solutions category – our closing message that drew an excited response and generated rounds of applause was these three words: “WE DELIVER HAPPINESS.”
What is the real definition of happiness? It is an emotional state characterized by feelings of joy, satisfaction, contentment, and fulfillment. While happiness has many different definitions, it is often described as involving positive emotions and life satisfaction.
Feedback from both our speech therapists and clients confirms that our virtual speech therapy solution does deliver happiness: miles of smiles on the faces of all our members and an incredible 98% patient satisfaction score.
We are truly making people of all ages feel joyous, satisfied, content and fulfilled by enabling them to reach their goals for improved speech and communication. Our efforts contribute to better interaction with family, friends, co-workers and the community — adding up to enhanced quality of life.
Our speech therapists use proven strategies and techniques during each session to help people express their feelings. Additionally, they support improved self-confidence and better interpersonal relationships. They genuinely provide something that is just a little bit more intangible: happiness. According to a more than 85-year-long study by Harvard University, “Our relationships and how happy we are in those relationships have a powerful influence on our health.”
The ability to effectively communicate is something that most of us take 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. Consider a child with autism spectrum disorder who has difficulty developing language skills, understanding what others say to them and communicating non-verbally.
Without a voice, people begin to feel frustrated and isolated. The ability to speak is a treasured gift that brings joy and happiness. However, it is hard to put a monetary value on a person’s vocal power to convey thoughts or ideas. Communication skills can’t be bought, but they can be stolen.
Fortunately, 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 to others is also a wonderful form of self-care. Virtual speech therapy is an investment that provides a great return: happiness.
Yes, Great Speech delivers happiness, but we also experience happiness when our clients succeed. And for that, we thank you! Do you have room for a little more happiness in your life?
