In my 10+ years as a telepractice SLP, I have probably conducted over a hundred assessments online. When I first started, the only options were paper-based assessments, including stimulus books, record forms, and scoring manuals. Now, there are digital options that make delivering assessments via telepractice much easier for the telepractice SLP.
