Telehealth language assessments using consumer grade equipment in rural and urban settings: Feasible, reliable and well tolerated.
Journal of Telemedicine and Telecare, 23 (1), 106-115, 2017.
Telehealth can be an effective way to provide speech pathology intervention to children with speech and language impairments. However, the provision of reliable and feasible standardised language assessments via telehealth to establish children’s needs for intervention and to monitor progress has not yet been well established. Further, there is limited information about children’s reactions to telehealth. This study aimed to examine the reliability and feasibility of conducting standardised language assessment with school-aged children with known or suspected language impairment via a telehealth application using consumer grade computer equipment within a public school setting.
