Telehealth: Stories from the Field
During this pandemic, telehealth has been more than just convenient — it’s been a necessity.  Looking ahead, telehealth will likely remain a viable, even preferred, option for some families when seeking medical care, mental health care, and therapeutic services when those services can effectively be received at a distance.

Presenters Dr. Carolyn Kippes, Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, Sanford Children’s Specialty Clinic;  Robyn Shores Foster, CSW-PIP, Burroughs Counseling; Vanessa Anderson-Smith MA CCC-SLP COM® Owner/Speech-Language Pathologist, Certified Orofacial Myologist®; and parent Amber Finnesand  share their telehealth experiences, successes, and tips on how families can make the most of telehealth or teletherapy visits.
