My tech skills

I am trying very hard to get his blog to feed into my website, but I can't seem to get it to work. I hope to have this going soon so that it's easier for readers to get this information. I am working on developing an aphasia support group at our office in St. Petersburg. To my knowledge, the only groups around are for stroke in general--there are not any specific to aphasia and that's a shame. So, here's to figuring out technology so that I can get these announcements out!

Thoughts on telepractice sessions

We've been working to try to help out those of you that live just far enough away to make a more costly program (yes, I'm talking about those of you up in New Port Richey, aka nowhere). Telepractice is a growing method of treatment delivery, so we looked in to it to see what the rules are and found out that there really are no rules. State licensure seems to be the only thing keeping us from coming into homes around the world! I'll settle for Florida..... There's a new tab on the website ( about the telepractice. With growing technology, which I can't claim to fully understand, I think there are so many more possibilities for treatment delivery than showing up at some hospital for a few hours a week. Remember when there were housecalls? No, I don't, but we can make virtual housecalls! Works for me.
