K-12 Speech-Language Therapy During COVID-19 & Beyond.

5 Steps to address COVID Challenges.

AmplioSpeech has carefully analyzed the performance of speech-language students during the pandemic, and has identified the challenges in the coming year

For the most vulnerable students, who struggle academically and often personally and socially at all times, the current times of turbulence might be disastrous. These children have already suffered compromised service since March, lack service during the summer, and might dramatically regress further if they do not receive intensive instruction tailored to their specific needs.

As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads and challenges unfold, AmplioSpeech solutions evolve to address the emerging needs. Combining award-winning technology with a community of experts in the digitization of SLP services yields impactful evolution. The AmplioSpeech platform incorporates advanced capabilities, such as:

Efficient and Effective Online Service

Pandemic waves, school closures and personal quarantines will force students and educators to stay at their safe homes in this coming school year. Effective online services reduce pressure for students or staff to return to school, when it is not in the best interest for them, their classmates or their colleagues.

With AmplioSpeech, students benefit from high-quality, efficacious online therapy. The platform offloads many of the SLPs tasks, reducing workload during these stressful times. AmplioSpeech easily-accessible technical support as well as clinical support enable smooth therapy.

Safe Onsite Service

Traditional speech-language sessions, with a group of students from different classes, in a small room, without masks, is not safe for students or SLPs.

Service Continuity

The coming school year will be characterized by alternating and hybrid settings. Schools will open and close with COVID waves. Individual students as well as staff will fluctuate between being at school and staying home. Continuous, regular, and consistent therapy will become a safe haven for fragile students while ensuring continued student progress. Such services can only be provided if the entire therapy cycle is managed by a single platform, regardless of setting (online or onsite), including resources, documentation, reimbursement, practice, etc.

AmplioSpeech provides a monolithic platform for all settings. Groups can be formed with students both onsite and online. The same resources and materials are used in any model. Documentation is consistent and standardized throughout the year. Most importantly, IEP time is likely to be met with easy switching between online and onsite.

A Surge of Evaluations and Compensatory Services

Students have missed tens of thousands of evaluations and sessions since COVID-19 broke into our lives. Most schools were not able to compensate for these during the summer. Without proper evaluations and compliant compensatory services, students will regress. We, therefore, expect to double the number of evaluations and services during the first months of the fall.
AmplioSpeech offers a safety net for school districts. An evaluation squad of licensed, trained, online SLPs is offered to schools. Additional AmplioSpeech SLPs complement regular services with afternoon group compensatory services, to bridge the gaps.

A Quick transition to digital services

SpEd directors report that many clinicians find it difficult to transition from the status quo to a new modality, and in many cases, they too are struggling with the change. The transition does not only involve technology, it also changes processes and logistics, as well as fundamental clinical aspects, such as engaging the student. Good digital platforms have a lot to offer for those who embrace them. They empower clinicians, reduce workload, and enable oversight. If this is new to you or your staff, we highly recommend using a guide to help you through the digital jungle.
AmplioSpeech offers guidance, training, and support to school admins and clinicians, accelerating the transition to digital services. The training includes the use of the AmplioSpeech platform, translating in-person to online therapy, as well as sessions simulation with an SLP playing a student. Mentorship, daily walk-in sessions, Facebook SLPs community and other methods are offered to ensure the transition is quick, smooth, and fun.
