How Does Speech and Language Teletherapy Work?

Our speech and language teletherapy in Singapore eliminates the need for patients to travel to receive therapy. The sessions will be delivered via Zoom, an online meeting tool. Our meetings are GDPR compliant, and you will be given a password to join the meeting. 


Although the sessions will be held online, they will be held in a secure environment where only you will be able to view them. You don't even need to be a technical genius to set up the meetings; all you have to do is download the Zoom app.

Speech and language abilities are potent predictors of educational, social, and occupational success. Therefore, speech teletherapy in Singapore is a viable service delivery approach at Total Communication for offering speech and language intervention services to this Singapore community.

LITERACY INTERVENTION VIA VIDEO-CONFERENCING

Literacy skills are essential for communication and some children begin their schooling with an impaired phonological or orthographic processing system, This means they will need support with early literacy skills such as phonics.

 

The Seeing Stars programme allows children to work systematically through the building blocks of foundational literacy skills.

The programme works by targeting:

  • Symbol imagery - improving visualization skills for struggling readers

  • Phonological knowledge - sounds of letters and words

  • Orthographic knowledge - letter correspondence to sound English irregularities - known as "sight words"

  • Morphological knowledge - knowing the meaningful parts of words (suffixes, prefixes)

  • Visual memory for spelling

 

Seeing Stars is a research-validated programme for reading fluency and spelling. Children receiving the Seeing Stars programme are known to show improvement in reading, reading fluency and spelling​

LANGUAGE INTERVENTION VIA VIDEO-CONFERENCING

 

Evidence-based and comprehensive Language intervention continues to be provided through online video-conferencing. Language goals can be targeted through online group therapy sessions as well as individual sessions. Our interventions target areas such as:
 

  • Narrative Skills: Targeting both macro and micro structures, using evidence-based programmes such as the Braidy Narrative, vocabulary development, theory of mind and perspective taking, higher level language skills such as sequencing and inferencing, and much more.
     

  • Concepts Building: Targeting language concepts which are essential for the accurate following of instructions and accessing the curriculum, including concepts such as temporal (before, after), spatial (prepositions), sequential (first, next..), quantitative (more, less, equal), qualitative (same, different, big, small), conditional (if, unless) and so on.
     

  • Grammar and Syntax: Targeting the accurate use of word order and word combinations using research-driven methods such as Colourful Semantics.
     

  • Semantics: Expanding and building up a strong repertoire of vocabulary, and strengthening your child’s semantic network, through work such as categorization, and semantic feature analyses.
     

This list is non-exhaustive and all language interventions and treatment plans are individualized to target each child’s specific needs and goals so that they can thrive to their full potential.​
