Abstract

Due to the global pandemic of Covid-19 requiring heightened safety and social distancing protocols, many service settings and academic clinics quickly transitioned to telepractice as a means for continued service provision. In response to this change, ASHA provided continuing education, guidelines, and resources related to telepractice and allowed students to count clinical hours obtained through telepractice service delivery toward Certification Standard V-C. During one semester at an academic clinic, graduate and undergraduate student clinicians provided speech-language therapy through in-person and telepractice service delivery. This presentation will describe graduate student clinicians’ perceptions of in-person vs. telepractice service delivery based on preparation/training, client and clinician engagement, treatment benefits and barriers, data collection, client progress, and family/caregiver involvement. This presentation will provide additional information for academic clinical training programs in designing curriculum to enhance the future of telepractice service delivery.
