    Christina Fry, M.Ed., LDT, CALT

    Recorded March 27, 2020


    In the wake of upheaval from the Coronavirus most of our therapists that have serviced students in schools and/or private practice face-to-face and have now been forced to take their show and go home. Our students still need to be serviced. As professionals we want to be able to do this as effectively as we possibly can given the current situations. This presentation is designed to assist our members in quickly setting up and beginning an online therapy practice with as little stress as possible. Chris Fry, Certified Academic Language Therapist, shares basic directions on using the zoom platform for this and demonstrating many practical ideas that she uses in her own online teaching practice.


    ALTA offers its members 1.0 hour for this video.
