Overview

This two day workshop will provide attendees with an immersive teletherapy experience, equipping professionals in the fields of speech-language pathology and special education with the knowledge and skills necessary to start or grow a teletherapy practice.

Content will be presented entirely via videoconference technology -- learners can attend from anywhere around the world!
