Bernice

It was perfect. Dawn was engaging. She gave relevant information and examples. I would have liked a few more examples of therapy materials and ideas that might be used.

Dawn

The presenter was engaging and informative. Could always use more Q&A. I had fun and am glad I did it

Deborah

Excellent, engaging, knowledgeable speaker, clear, etc. Maybe spending less time on the checklists to prepare and more. I would have liked to see examples of therapy (videos), more time on actual therapy and therapy ideas, small group breakout session so that we could discuss our experiences and help each other out, networking with other teletherapists. Liked the platform used, very clear presentation, excellent, thank you

The clarity nd simplcity. Very organized and inclusive. For me they served my needs quite well. Well done.

The program was very detailed and discussed scenarios that we may come across in the field. I did not observe any weaknesses in the program. Any questions I had before the program were answered. I really appreciate the work that was put into this program to better prepare us when providing services during virtual sessions.

Nicolette

Dawn was very encouraging and promoted out of the box thinking. Too much time dedicated to virtual set-up vs. therapy with telepractice.

Pristine Sara

More insights on materials and resources that were completely new. Understanding certain areas of tele practices and modifications to be made in the learning part. Very interesting and looking forward to many such webinars that address tele rehabilitation area.

Cohesive and relevant information. Again, I enjoyed the presentation and thought the information was helpful.

The detailed slides. It was a little long so I found it hard to focus the entire time. I think it being more straight to the point would help.

Great checklists. Would love to see examples of teletherapy sessions. Thank you!

Loved the cultural humility aspect and the checklist resources. I wish we would have seen a specific example of a session played. More examples of activities in sessions with parent vs one on one with a child. It was good overall. The presenter was very knowledgable with tons of experience.

Addressed diversity and meeting families where they are but not enough concrete examples

Materials that I was unaware of are very helpful. Hope she suggested ideas or techniques that are not too ordinary that every SLPs uses
