School & Education Speech & Language Therapy

School & Education Speech & Language Therapy

Each of our clients are eligible for this personalised school service. Speech Video Therapy affords schools previously unprecedented flexibility and access to top therapists.

By utilising fun and engaging digital technology, Video Therapy is exceptionally child-friendly. Today’s children are comfortable with technology and love using digital game-based activities. The actual session is similar to a face-to-face session.

We let the pupil play, books are shared to encourage language development and early literacy skills, and songs and rhymes are incorporated. Therapy is always diagnostic in nature, meaning that we continually monitor the pupil's progress and modify the activities or goals when needed. 

We will allocate a Speech & Language Therapist for your educational setting, which will enable you to have an exclusive hands-on advice and TeleTherapy sessions in your nursery, school, college or any other educational setting.

Why consider Online Speech Therapy?

  • Flexibility: Video Therapy affords schools previously unprecedented flexibility and access to top therapists, as they are no longer limited to locally-based clinicians, but can draw from an extensive nationwide network of highly qualified, therapists.

  • Cuts Costs: Video Therapy exceptional value and is affordable. Some might think that Video Therapy is more expensive than traditional onsite therapy due to the added costs incurred by equipment, professionals, and technology, the truth is quite the opposite. Except for the cost of the computer; Video Therapy saves money because:

    • The price of a therapist is generally the same whether the therapy is delivered onsite or via Video Therapy.

    • Traveling expenses are eliminated on both sides.

    • Traditional staffing agencies charge a premium fee to find a therapist who will travel, which does not apply to Video Therapy.

    • The client uses their own computer – something they are likely to have access to already.

  • Effectiveness: Schools have better access to specialists as well as culturally and linguistically diverse therapists, and therapists with specialties, allowing for more targeted and effective outcomes.

  • Freedom: Schools no longer have to recruit, screen, and manage therapists, pay transportation expenses, or worry about interruptions in therapy when clinicians are absent, leave, or are no longer with the district. Services remain uninterrupted, freeing up staff time for other educational priorities.

  • Peace of Mind: Video Therapy relieves schools of other administrative headaches and expenses as well by streamlining scheduling, easing tracking and reporting, simplifying, auditing, and organizing accurate and instantly retrievable records through the digital services provided. This ability to access critical information instantly - all in real time - increases parent satisfaction and minimises the risk of compliance issues.

How much does it cost?

The cost of Video Therapy is lower than face-to-face therapy, as we don't need to travel to you or pay clinic costs. We charge the same fees for schools and individuals.

Does an adult need to be present for a child session at all times?

If the child is independent and confident with technology, a responsible party within line of sight is acceptable. Sometimes children need support at the start of each session. We do recommend, particularly with younger children, to have a responsible adult in the room to encourage or prompt. This is also a great opportunity to engage and learn new techniques with your child to then apply to your everyday life, to get the best outcome. 

What happens if a session is cancelled?

In the event that a session is cancelled, Speeble will provide an alternative session as soon as possible after the cancellation.  Parents will be notified by email of the replacement date.  Refunds will not be provided unless a replacement session cannot be scheduled.  Speeble cannot be held responsible for sessions cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control e.g. unscheduled school closures.

How long do the therapy sessions last?

The sessions are 30 minutes, we do recommend being by the computer at least 5 minutes before the session starts.

What does the school need to provide?

To run the Speech Therapy session, the school needs to have computer with a webcam and access to the internet.

How will Speeble communicate with parents?

Any Speeble notifications will usually be sent by email to the email address supplied when booking.  Please be aware that Speeble cannot be responsible for email notifications being held in personal spam folders and so we recommend adding @speeble.co.uk to your safe recipients list. 

In the event that a last minute/urgent notification is required, this will be sent by text message to the telephone number provided at the time of booking.
