About EBS Teletherapy
EBS has been a pioneer in the telepractice and telehealth field for over a decade. Our distance learning programs are constantly being updated to implement the latest research and technology. EBS is providing a solution that allows students to continue to receive essential services such as speech therapy, occupational therapy, psychology, and behavioral and mental health services.
What is Teletherapy?
Teletherapy allows children to directly interact with a dedicated and certified professional using live video conferencing at school or at home. Teletherapy is a service delivery model, not a technique, and has been used successfully since the late 1990s in tens of thousands of therapy sessions across the United States.
Our therapists have received specialized training from EBS to become certified as teletherapists who engage and motivate children through interactive teletherapy services. The services are live–not automated nor provided through a recording.
During teletherapy sessions, the child and therapist can see, hear, and interact with one another in real time, using a secure webcam and headsets, in a live online shared learning environment. If you’ve ever used Skype on your computer or FaceTime on your iPhone, you’ve used a similar type of technology. What should you and your child expect? The same high-quality services that the student would receive on-site!

Benefits of Teletherapy
By utilizing digital technology in a fun and engaging format, teletherapy is exceptionally kid friendly. Today’s children are comfortable with computers and love game-based activities such as video interactions and digital learning. In this rapidly developing technological world, the digital dimensions of online therapy, telehealth, and online university classes have become very natural and almost expected. For many children, teletherapy is less intimidating than the traditional face-to-face therapy and has been shown to drive even better results for some.
How is Teletherapy Implemented?
Children can access secure, HIPAA-compliant, evidence-based best practices from Certified Telepractitioners.
Children only need an internet connection and a video camera to participate. EBS supplies the headphones and microphone. Our secure system is completely web based, which means you do not have to download any specialized software.
Teletherapy can be delivered via a PC, Mac, or Chromebook, with supplemental applications running on iPads and other devices. Any popular web browser (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox) will make therapy connections possible.
