Strive offers online speech therapy services (i.e., sounds, language, accent reduction, stuttering and more) any place in Alberta or the Northwest Territories with high speed internet using computers (Edmonton, Calgary, Airdrie, Red Deer, Lethbridge, etc.). This allows you to access speech therapy from the convenience and comfort of you home, school, or work setting.
Instead of sitting across a table from one another, you will be face to face across a computer screen. Shelley finds that online sessions work very well for speech and language therapy.

How do I arrange for online speech language therapy?
You may phone us or use the Contact Us button to go to the page to send an email. In your email, do not provide personal identification information such as birthdate, AHC, a medical insurance plan, reports or payment information. If at a later date, we need a birthdate on our consent form, we will typically have you send that to us by fax.
If you have not heard back within 3 business days, please email again or call.
Do you only see clients from Alberta and the Northwest Territories? Yes.
There are often strict regulations and high costs to acquiring practice permits in the United States and most Canadian provinces. People from the United States are encouraged to seek services in the USA.
Will you be using the clients name in emails for homework?
Email is not typically encrypted. Even if agencies have email encrypted while it is traveling to a client, once it is in an inbox, it can be read to whoever gains access. Consequently, if you are selected for a treatment block we may send your homework under the title: This is the homework: .... If there are multiple clients for an email you can let us know what to use instead of the full name. If it is a school system receiving homework, again a code can be used. For example, the emailed homework might read as: Client AB1 can complete the following homework. If you are uncomfortable with confidentiality of using email and are not willing to be responsible for any possible risks that technology can not be guaranteed to be 100 secure, we can provide other options (faxing/mailing).
