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.


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


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


Very knowledgeable. It was a good webinar. The information was useful and beneficial.


Amazing speaker! This was so helpful!


It was satisfactory. Dawn shared her information clearly


I loved the checklist for coaching/facilitators. It met all my expectations!


Informative, great resources, getting on the same page with the parents. Great, informative, helpful for future sessions


Knowledgeable presenter. I think it did a good job. Thanks for it- well done.


The knowledge of the speaker. Great presentation.


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.


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

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.


The checklists hat were provided. I was a great presentation with lots of great information as I begin my telehealth journey. I was hoping for more therapy ideas, but it was awesome!


Speakers experience and demeanor. Thank you!


Resources, personal examples and personal examples. Would be great to have one case study, and a run-down example of session layout.


Very informative. Great ideas for parent teaching and carry over. It was great. Thank you.


Good emphasis on parent coaching. Took a long time to get to the point of the presentation, presenter did not seem prepared. Thank you for this helpful information.


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


Dawn provided links to great resources. It was a very broad overview. Dawn was a great speaker, very personable and organized!


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


Checklists for evidence based practice are the best. Provided strategies, activities, websites to integrate into Zoom such as BoomCards


Great self-evaluations. Model examples of teaching via video.
